Lawmaker challenges fee increases

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

On the day that huge increases in the fees to become a U.S. citizen and get other immigration benefits took effect, Rep. Zoe Lofgren introduced a bill to void those new charges.

"But USCIS has consistently failed to explain or justify the amounts and distributions of this new fee increase. After repeated requests over several months, USCIS has yet to provide Congress with a detailed plan for its infrastructure modernization efforts. Our immigration system should be both effective and fair'. Sacrificing one to achieve the other should not be an option.

At least someone is asking the right questions.

"Before we give you more money, how about you tell us how you plan to use it?"

i agree....

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).
