'Make the sacrifices'

In response to her Feb. 19 commentary on immigration fees, I would like to know a reason why Maria Elena Salinas feels that the government, i.e. taxpayers, should have to pay for immigrants to become citizens and obtain work permits. Isn't it already bad enough the taxpayers have to foot the bill for the 12 million illegal immigrants?

If people want to become American citizens they should be the ones to make the sacrifices to better their own lives, not the American people.
