When Lucinda Sweazey's family immigrated from Canada in 1999, it took seven years and an estimated $45,000 in fees to secure permanent resident status in the U.S. Ms. Sweazey and other legal immigrants are voicing concerns that providing amnesty for those who arrived illegally will only encourage more of the same.
"Our lawyer even mentioned to us when we were going through the process legally that it would have been easier if we came in illegally. We would have saved money, and there's a good chance we would be citizens by now," Ms. Sweazey said.
