Of course!

Perfectly rational. And it would be perfectly rational to anticipate the increased flood of immigrants who would be pouring across the border knowing that they would be made "citizens" in short order.
Duh. Close down the welfare state THEN talk about "amnesty". Until then, it is giving the country away to the third world.
