Indeed It Is

The Homeland Security Department is studying whether legal immigrants seeking citizenship and other benefits should pay higher application fees.
…”American citizenship is priceless,” said Gonzalez, a naturalized citizen. “I think people will pay.”

priceless. Which is exactly why it shouldn’t be ‘FOR SALE’.

The Senate passed a bill last week that would offer a chance at citizenship for many of the 11 million to 12 million illegal immigrants already in the country. It would require the immigrants to pay at least $3,200 in fees to get on the path to citizenship.

  1. I don’t recall the details, but I also read recently that one version (at least) of the bill would require them to pay back taxes for three of the last five years. I, for one, was required to pay taxes for ALL five years.

    Hey, where do I sign up for the option of only paying 60% of my taxes?

    Sure, this is a great idea – let’s make citizenship easier and more desirable by CHARGING for it! It’s not like people would just jump the border and wait for an amnesty instead, right? What a pack of fucking Einsteins.
