Kerry Healey on Homeland Security

 


Illegal immigrants pose a security risk

Reilly and Healey exchanged views on WRKO-AM about letting children of illegal immigrants pay reduced in-state tuition rates. Reilly said Romney and Healey should have more compassion for the children of illegal immigrants. "So you're better than they are?" Reilly asked Healey. "You want to shut the door to college."

Healey said she's defending taxpayers and that illegal immigrants pose a security risk. "I am a citizen of this state and this country. They are not. This country is not open to every single person who wants to come here. People who are here illegally pose a risk, both a security risk and a drain on taxpayer resources," she said. "Let them go to private schools if they want to." Healey also pointed out that Reilly opposes allowing illegal immigrants to obtain driver's licenses.
