An interesting view on illegal immigration from National Review Assuming the statistics are correct illegal immigrants cost federal and local government money and converting them to a legal status will cost the country more money since they will be able to claim more benefits. The interesting part is that you are only able to claim benefits if you are permanents resident. If you are on a non immigrant visa then you can’t claim things like unemployment benefits food stamps etc.

So I wonder if anyone on the hill has done the math on how much it will cost to legalize the illegals.
