People in country illegally use services meant for citizens

A lot of people, especially the younger generation, are not the least bit concerned about the dilemma our country has gotten itself into. Yes, I am talking about the continually rising deficit.
Recently, we had a great disaster with Hurricane Harvey.
Yes, I fully agree that we should help the citizens of this country recover. And I stress citizens, especially taxpayers. There are 1.5 million illegals in Houston alone, maybe more. Yes, I know you have to rescue and feed them. But the thing that really irks me is the fact that they shouldn't be here in the first place. They should all be sent back and then have to go through the legal process to become citizens.
Another thing that irks me is that they, and the freeloaders, always seem to wind up first in line. The old saying still holds true about the squeaky wheel getting the grease. Right away, there are protesters and plenty of legal help from attorneys to represent them. I hope it is not what I think - grants or other monies paid for by the good old taxpayers. With the legal help they get, they know how to apply. Somehow, I don't know why, but our Congress, especially Democrats, are more eager to help these people rather than actual citizens.
They always say there is no illegal voting, but I think different. We know for a fact that it can and does happen. Just look back at the politics in Duval County here in Texas.
These illegals know all the ins and outs about how to get into shelters and get food. They filled the shelters and our citizens were turned away because of no room.
Why is it that certain ethnic groups, church groups and do-gooders, bleeding hearts and others constantly want to bring more into this country, even if it means breaking the law to help them? Do they have some magic formula to fund all this?
