Draw them in on a K1 with lower fees then hit them with ludacrously high costs for AOS, ROC and Naturalization. USA, USA, USA! I am so glad I got my k1 and AOS in before the last hike in price, the problem is it makes everyone rsuh to file before the increase which overloads USCIS and delays us. So the extra revenue from the increase just dissapears in clearing the backlog.

Pfft, Liverpool. GO MANCHESTER UNITED! :devil: Heehee...

Ok :ot2: ...

I think it's a small step to immigration reform. Allow more people to afford to come over, but make sure only the worthy can stay (which explains the raise in fees for almost everything else). I don't know for sure, it's just a theory.
