Give me your tired, your poor, your $50 asylum fee

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced new fees for dozens of immigration and naturalization applications, most raising at least 20%. Some fees such as the application for naturalization saw much larger increases raising 83% ($640 to $1170), other fees associated with the process saw similar increases. Fees related to contesting deportation raised more than 500%

There was one new fee, for the first time asylum seekers will be required to pay $50 for their application to be considered.

Weird stuff going on with that agency.

Historically, they run big surpluses.

They're funded by the fees that they charge. And one might reasonably assume that the problem is due to Drumpf's immigration policies -- fewer immigrants implies less income from processing fees.

But this year there is still a projected surplus. And even with the projected surplus, they requested emergency funding and raised fees, allegedly to avoid furloughs.

Where is all of their money going?

Wherever there's a government income flow, there's a Trumper finagling how to redirect it.

This agency is being weaponized. Some fees are down because they refuse to process quickly. Some are being increased as noted.
