Of the 1.76 million potential beneficiaries, about 45 percent are in K-12 grade school, 22 percent have a high-school diploma or GED, 4.5 percent are college grads, and 8 percent are attending college. The final 20 percent are not students and don’t have diplomas, but they would be eligible if they re-enroll in high school or GED programs by the time they apply.

Immigration policy groups questioned whether the Department of Homeland Security is prepared to deal with the influx of applications. There are already massive backlogs that have slowed down the federal government’s ability to process cases of legal and illegal immigrants.

Altogether, officials say, “the cost to the government could range from a gain of $16 million to a loss of more than $101 million” within the first two years, the Associated Press reports.

It will be impossible for it not to be a loss considering they have waived charges for the I-821D petition, which will be paid through tax-funded appropriations. But, this was the plan from the beginning.

This is why Obama is pandering to Hispanics. It also clearly illustrates why the issue of amnesty for illegal aliens is of greater importance to Hispanics than other groups.

Well of course that was the plan. These are poor people. $450 per application. What if a family has 4 or more kids ?
These people don't have that kind of money sitting around.

You know if that 74% were non-hispanic whites from Germany where my ancestors were from I would still be outraged over illegal immigration. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. My loyalty lays with the U.S. and with my fellow Americans.

The fee will be a waived for the "needy". I figure that will be around 90%.

I feel the same. My maternal grandmother was also German. Well, actually her parents were German immigrants, she was born here. If the majority of illegals were German, I would continue to be a staunch opponent of illegal immigration. While I have no knowledge of the origin of my African ancestors, if most illegals were black from Africa, Haiti, Jamaica, etc, I would still vehemently oppose their presence. I don't give a damn about race or ethnicity. If they are here illegally, they need to go.

On several occasions, I have asked Hispanic posters if they would be such passionate supporters of illegal aliens if the majority were Haitian. I have yet to get a response. You would be hard-pressed to find bigger ethnocentric hypocrites than the group accusing others of racism, xenophobia, nativism, and whining about racial profiling. In fact, Janet Murguia, the leader of La Raza, sent a letter to Congress requesting a moratorium on African immigrants. She wants to limit the number of black people entering this country legally. Yet, at the same time, believes we should embrace untold millions of Hispanic illegal aliens. How's that for ethnocentric gall?

One thing is certain, they are only being charged fees for work permits and fingerprinting. So, 100% are having fees waived for the I-821D petition for deferred action. I guess the government thought we would be too stupid to notice.

I'm of Irish family and you're 100 percent right. Illegal IS illegal.

I have asked that same question many times. Never once did I get an answer. I wonder why that is?

My British-American husband and I would like our fees returned then. We could use the money. He's just finished applying for the removal of conditions after having been here almost 4 years. He's had to be fingerprinted twice because of a screw up and they've lost his papers a few times and he still doesn't have the card. The entire process has been a long drawn out bureaucratic nightmare. Can we get our money back and just waive the fees like the illegals do?

Yes its clearly one group & country that will benefit the most. Why should they get special treatment?
