The cost of amnesty just keeps getting higher and higher. I was dumbfounded the other day when I heard some far-left progressive politician crying that the costs were too high for illegal aliens to apply for citizenship. He stated that when he first was elected, the cost was $90 to go through the application process but now the cost has risen to $700. In his eyes, illegal aliens paying anything for getting US citizenship is grossly unfair. However, the real kick in the pants is that all of this is unfair to the US taxpayer. Let’s take a look at the true cost of amnesty.
According to the government, there are 11.5 million illegal aliens here in the US. Personally, I think that total is somewhat low, but let’s work with that figure. The cost to process an application for citizenship is $2000 per application, and that cost assumes that everything goes smoothly and there is no need for any follow-up. Now, my personal opinion that illegal aliens should not be allowed to become US citizens aside, why shouldn’t they pay for the costs they’re foisting on the US taxpayer? The progressive idiot complaining of the high cost to the lawbreaker makes me want to start foaming at the mouth. If every illegal alien applies for citizenship under the various amnesty legislation being bandied about currently, the cost to us would be 23 billion dollars. That’s assuming there’s no hiccups in the procedure and doesn’t include further costs that may occur further along the line such as taking classes in English.
