A large Washington suburb eyeing a $200,000 program to give taxpayer-funded legal aid to illegal immigrants said that deportations hurt it.

The article goes on to state the following:
Democrat Sharon Bulova said that the goal of a legal aid pilot program is to keep illegal immigrants from deportation.
In an email released by the Suburban Virginia Republican Coalition, she wrote: “The men and women who will benefit from the services offered by the pilot program are contributing members of our community. The funding is meant to ensure that people have a chance to defend themselves, to make their case, for being in this county legally through the established legal processes.”
