Why should U.S. taxpayers who pay for government services be deprived of federal benefits because our elected congressmen cannot agree on immigration policies? How would it be if we were deprived of our insured medical services because doctors could not agree on the absolute best treatment?
Also, why should the passage of the federal budget be dependent upon issues with immigration? This is like a condo association not passing its budget due to a dispute on a policy for pets. These should be separate issues.
