From Reuters:

The U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday passed legislation granting special immigration visas to hundreds of Iraqi and Afghan translators whose lives are endangered because they helped U.S. forces.

Now, it is "only" 500 visas. Of course, with chain migration policies, it will be a lot more in the long run. The web site www.costofwar.com put the cost of the Iraq war at $428 billion the last time I looked. The costs of the additional immigration associated with that adventure are likely to mount up over time.
