How much is a US “Green Card” worth? After all, such a card allows one to:
1. Live and work permanently in the United States of America
2. Become a US citizen after a few years.
The Central-American country of Belize allows you to purchase citizenship for $25,000. Surely, a US Green Card is worth at least $100,000.
The Senate’s amnesty plan proposes to effectively give away at least 60 million such Green Cards. In effect, that’s about 60 million * 100,000 = $6 Trillion worth of Green Cards. (Yes, that’s Trillion with a T. It has twelve zeros: 6,000,000,000,000. It’s six thousand billions.)A very good point. They are doing it to buy Democratic votes, because they think that the majority will vote Democratic just like the blacks do, even though the Dems dont do anything for eoter group. But if we sold the Green Cards they would be bought by people that learned how to improve themselves, and they would be likely to become Republican voters.Suppose the Senate decided to instead auction off those Green Cards on the world markets, we could almost completely wipe out our $8 trillion national debt. If we didn’t want to wipe out our debt, we could send every American man, woman, and child a check for $20,000.
Instead, the Senate is giving these Green Cards away to the 12-20 million low-skilled, under-educated, non-English-speaking, immigration-law-breaking, fraudsters, forgers, and perjurers euphemistically described as “undocumented workers.” It’s a $6 trillion giveaway only to criminals. That’s over ten times the size of the much-maligned Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit. However, unlike the Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit, it’s not available to needy American citizens, only to proven foreign criminals. Now that’s what I call Big Government!
