Skip to comments.Bill allows for $150M in grants to sign up illegal immigrants to become citizens

A Washington group is criticizing the Senate immigration bill because it allows for up to $150 million for organizations to advertise citizenship opportunities and to help illegal immigrants sign up to become citizens.
The nonpartisan Center for Immigration Services calls the money slush funds and earlier this week cited several concerns -- particularly that the money can go to the same groups that helped craft the legislation and that the spending appears to have no cap or oversight.
Its virtually a blank check, Jon Feere, a Center for Immigration Services legal policy analyst, told FoxNews.com. And the groups that helped draft this bill can now give themselves taxpayer dollars.
The money is divided into two parts. The first is $100 million in grants to public and private nonprofit groups for programs that help people apply for provisional immigrant status, which includes assistance with completing applications and gathering proof of identification.
The other part in $50 million for additional assistance that includes legal help and public-awareness campaigns that tell illegal immigrants about the eligibility and benefits of registered immigration status.(continued)

Does anyone SERIOUSLY think that the Illegals will pay fines. They will not. They will either have them waived (hardship waiver), or LaRaza or some other group will cover it.
...it is Amnesty (forgiveness), as far as the Illegals are concerned.
Look, this is not Rubio’s fault,
He was busy on the Sunday talk shows talking up the immigration bill telling us how they would die of old age before they get citizenship when Dems snuck this part into it.
Those Dems trickiness is downright diabolical!
or LaRaza or some other group will cover it.”
And use the grant money from our tax dollars to do so. In essence we, the taxpayers who want them deported, are paying for them to come to the USA.
Past time for a tax revolt.
I need my money to eat, not to supply criminals the comforts of life in the USA.
$150 Million for LaRaza.
Marco Rubio - what about that?
The public servants running this government have all gone insane. Totally insane.
I’ll bet the buffoons on the hill have added millions into the bill for gas money for La Raza to go down, pick them up and bring them back here.
Outstanding. 150 million bucks to hire 11 million foreign nationals to be U.S. citizens. WHAT A DEAL!!! Our government is so thrifty!!!
I agree. Stop spending our hardearned dollars to pay people to sir around and thief more ways to tax us. I’ve got an idea; let’s trim our budget big time by firing Congress and the House of Non-Representatives and shutting down half the IRS offices.

Despite the dems, rinos and msm amnesty is not a done deal. Keep contacting your employees, your congress critters. They respond to heat.
This is money put in for the powerful American Bar Asso. by their lobbyists to make sure they get their share. The lawyers have to be taken care of at every opportunity by our Gov't. because most of this money will come back to the politicians for re-elections.
This, the only country in the world that meekly allows a 20-million-strong invasion from third-world countries, then looks to rewarding the invaders with generous benefits and citizenship.
America’s national act of suicide progresses on schedule.
Paging Juan McCain and Marco “The Gullible” Rubio....did you read the bill???
Better: Spend $150 million to sign up illegals. Then, after they’ve signed the papers, tell them they’ve just signed voluntary deportation papers and they have to apply through normal immigration channels to come back. Gotcha!
I thought Grover Norquist ran a group called “Americans for Tax Reform”??
And he is pushing this Spending Bill for Illegal Alien/Islamic Terrorist Amnesty...
Hey...its getting way too easy to just go after La Raza Rubio
Anyone pushing Illegal Alien/Islamic Terrorist Amnesty is not only Anti-American....they are Socialist, too
$100 million in federal grants to public and private "ethic solidarity nonprofits" to help illegals complete applications and choose which of their multiple identities to use to get the most US freebies.
Another $50 million for legal help and PR campaigns that tell illegals about the trainload of freebies they get w/ registered immigration status.
Dam those tricky Dems---they's downright diabolical! This is not Rubios fault. He was pumping his prez ambitions on Sunday talk shows----visions of voting illegals w/ multiple identities dancing in his head.
Tolerant and compassionate Rubio sobbed when he told America that the immigration bill was "harsh"---that poor illegals would die of old age before they get citizenship. Rubio wrung his hands in despair that those wascally Dems snuck all kinds of funding and stuff into it. (cue graphic of Rubio w/ halo).
