To the editor: State Sen.
One cannot be denied something to which one is not entitled. The only people who are entitled to a benefit paid for by citizens are other citizens.
We may choose to provide certain benefits to those who reside in California illegally, but these people are not entitled to government-funded healthcare.
Many illegal immigrants come here from countries, including Mexico, where they are entitled to basic healthcare provided by their government. If people want something they have a right to obtain, they should go where they can enjoy their entitlement.
