Harris is right to fight plan to send undocumented immigrant children to Carroll Co. [Letter]

I applaud Rep. Andy Harris for his press release expressing disagreement with using a military facility in Westminster to house illegal immigrant children ("Harris opposes Carroll County immigrant shelter," July 11).

In Carroll County there is no room for illegal aliens, and they are not welcome. There should be no room for illegal aliens in the state of Maryland.

Illegal aliens take jobs from American citizens and tax our public schools, public health system, hospitals and law enforcement.

Send all illegal aliens back to their home countries.

Scott Hollenbeck, Westminster
