Regarding "Immigrants lobby pol over Dream Act" [News, March 29], you reported that undocumented immigrants want tuition aid for college. So far, they have been denied.
Bully for Sen. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley) for opposing this idea, which would free up state-funded tuition assistance, allow the use of tax-deferred accounts for college savings and permit privately funded scholarships for thousands of immigrant students who reside in the state illegally.
Everyone wants to come here for a better life, but where is the patriotism and love of country? You can serve in the armed forces and show your appreciation that living in a free country affords you.
