Why the sympathy?

Regarding "Facing the border: A day laborer's story" (The Signal, Feb. 7):

Why are we patronizing and having sympathy for illegal immigrants?

Aberto Lopez is an illegal immigrant. Yes, the American Dream is only a dream if you are illegal. He has been here 10 years and still has not learned English. According to him he pays taxes. Does he use someone else's Social Security number or does he mean sales taxes?

He said he has never been on welfare. His children were born here. Who paid for them? His insurance or the state of California?

Does he receive aid from the housing authority because his children where born in this country? I agree with Bob Kellar and so do a lot of other Californians.

Yes, we will cry over a dog being rescued. It is legally here.
