Bummer: Trump Is Trying To Make It Took Expensive For Illegals And Moochers To Stay In U.S.

Obviously, bleeding heart (but not wallet) Democrats will be very upset about this. Of course, they never seem to pony up the money themselves

Trump is trying to make it too expensive for poor American immigrants to stay

Many of the immigration policies enacted by the administration of US president Donald Trump in the last year have been so shocking they’ve made headlines worldwide: family separation, zero tolerance, detained children, to name a few.

But not all of Trump’s efforts to restrict immigration have been so dramatic. In many cases, the administration has chipped away at the avenues for immigration through small bureaucratic changes, like the recent proposal to increase immigration-related fees.

On Nov. 14, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) proposed a review of the fees required to apply for various immigration services. The proposal is open for comments until Dec. 16. After that, if the new fees are confirmed, they will become effective immediately.

The changes affect a broad range of applications, from green cards through marriage, to naturalization fees, to DACA renewals (though new DACA applications aren’t allowed, existing ones can be renewed).

The new fee structure would also introduce a $50 fee for asylum applications, which would make the United States one of just a handful of countries—including Iran, Australia and Fiji—that don’t offer free asylum applications.

I fail to see the problem. We have too many people coming to this country who feel no allegiance to the US, our founding documents, nor our way of life. Many seem to be ambivalent and even hate the U.S. Many want us to change everything about the nation for these immigrants, be they legal or illegal. There should be no DACA fees: they should leave. Want asylum? Pay for it. The U.S. should no longer be the dumping ground for people who cannot take care of themselves, who have little in the way of working skills, and who will essentially have to be supported by the U.S. taxpayer, instead of us taking care of our own. Let some other nations step.

“It’s (the asylum) not a huge fee,” Kevin Johnson, dean of the school of law at the University of California, Davis, told Quartz. “But it is a huge fee to those who often come at the border with nothing.”

This is an attempt to weed out those who are serious from the BSers looking for easy access to the U.S. Those same BSers generally bring nothing but the need for being on the dole.

The new fees are essentially aimed at tightening the so-called “public charge exclusion,” or reducing the number of people whose immigration applications are rejected because they might require financial support from the US government.

See? I fail to see the problem. And, we wouldn’t need to take these steps if we were allowed to block as many illegals as possible.

    They misspelled “Obama administration”.

    This is what election winners get to do, and what those who voted for him want: a full court press to fix things they do not like. Obama did the same thing, only in a different direction. And, I agree with you, nothing about it seems unfair to me. ‘Course, I’m not looking to whine about how unfair everything is.

    President Trump did not invent family separation, zero tolerance or detained children. They all existed long before Trump and they exist for good reasons. When adults are detained FOR ANY REASON they do not get to take their kids with them and that goes for “worldwide”. I don’t know in regard to which policy you are referring when you state “zero tolerance” but if something isn’t good why would one “tolerate” it? And nobody is detaining a child unless you consider removing them from a dangerous situation detention.

    Plucking things out of context to try and make a point doesn’t work around here.
