$1 billion, 30-week processing program revealed in leaked 14-page Homeland Security memo
(WorldNetDaily) – The U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services, a division of the Department of Homeland Security, already has drafted a plan for processing 13 million illegal alien applicants for amnesty in a 30-week period at an estimated cost of $1 billion, WND has learned.
The plan, a copy of which was obtained by WND, anticipates the approval of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” legislation pending in Congress and assumes a nine-month ramp-up period for processing of applications.
The undated draft report anticipates the possibility of the legislation requiring public benefits to amnesty applicants.
“If the statute requires interim benefits while application pending, issue discrete variant of status document (shorter term duration that [sic] if issued after prospective immigrant status granted),” the 14-page memo states.
Under the plan, applicants 14 through 79 years old would be required to submit themselves for photographs, a full set of fingerprints and a signature. A photo and single print would be required for others.
Only one outside contractor is discussed in the memo
