“The current levels of immigration are about five times higher than our tradition,” said Rosemary Jenks, director of government relations for NumbersUSA, an anti-illegal immigration group. “In our view, the best way to assure assimilation is to reduce the numbers… That means more resources per capita for new immigrants coming in...”

...The program is designed for legal immigrants, but undocumented immigrants can access the website and take English classes. Jenks of NumbersUSA said government funds shouldn’t be used to help illegal immigrants. “Any time an illegal immigrant comes in contact with the U.S. government, the result should be deportation,” she said.
