This is old news, has been published for a while and in the works even longer, Trump had nothing to do with it

Immigration is suppose to be self supported as in the user fees they collect are suppose to cover the cost of immigration (so tax payer dollars should not be used to fund immigration), the fees were raised to be in line with the operating cost of visa processing
