Deadline to comment: Dec 16th, 5 pm.
On Nov. 14 the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, or USCIS proposed a new fee schedule for immigration costs. It would drastically raise the fees for adjustment of status, asylum, DACA renewals and naturalization, and eliminate critical fee waivers for vulnerable and low-income immigrants. It also transfers $207 million from USCIS to ICE to use for enforcement.
This puts the American Dream out of reach for low-income and working-class immigrants. The only way to fight this is to submit a public comment. Over 4000 comments (see these for examples) have already been posted, overwhelmingly opposed. The holiday weekend is a perfect opportunity! You can do it:
- Directly here: through Regulations.gov
- Easier, with explanations: through Catholic Legal Immigration Network
- Ditto: through Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition
