Immigration | Calculate costs before granting citizenship

February 5, 2013 

While I am sympathetic to allowing illegal aliens to become citizens, I have a question. Who is going to pay for the bureaucratic process? How do we process 11 million aliens?

Recent Sun News articles documented how long it took for one person to get her husband legal --15 years! Her brother, 14 years and counting. The requirement is numerous background checks, jobs available, etc. We are looking at an enormous bureaucracy and subsequent cost. Close the borders first, then grant amnesty on a limited basis until the illegal is properly documented --a long process.
