[LETTERS TO THE EDITOR]U.S. benefits only for its true citizensI immigrated to the United States with my parents in 1982 and live in New York with two children. I have read articles about Korean mothers who have their babies in the United States so their children can enjoy various benefits as a U.S. citizen. But having babies in the United States in this way is immoral and unrighteous. Education in the eastern United States, especially in the New York area, is supported by taxes residents pay annually and federal government subsidies. The taxes residents pay play a key role in creating a good local education system. So Korean mothers who deliver their babies in the United States are selfish, contributing nothing to U.S. education systems and receiving all the benefits. If they want their children to grow through U.S. education, they have to immigrate to the United States and contribute to the community where they live.
