Letter: We ought to help veterans before illegal immigrants

We ought to help veterans before illegal immigrants

Before New York State gives tuition assistance to the families of illegal immigrants for a college education, I suggest that Albany should pay for the college fees of our service men and women. They have given a great deal and deserve our assistance.

As Abraham Lincoln stated in his Gettysburg Address, “It is for us the living to be dedicated to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.”

If not, why not? Veterans have struggled in the field of service, and they deserve America’s help in their field of life.
