Thread: Immigration only for the rich

  1. #1
    Has anyone noticed how expensive it is to go through the immigration process - even without a lawyer? I wonder sometimes if many people would like to be legal but just don't have the money. I also wonder if the process is so complicated so that they can get more money from immigrants? Any ideas?

    I see your point...sometimes I feel the same as well

    USCIS collects fees to cover its expenses so that it does not have to get funding from US Govt. If you think about it, it makes sense. Why should US Govt pay from its pocket or spend tax dollars to legalize non-immigrants. I understand that the fee has increased in recent years but still I think it is a small fee to get legal immigrant status. Also, USCIS can waive the fee in certain deserving cases.

    I am more than certain that if immigration fees were tripled, even quadripuled, many of those who are unable to become legal immigrants would promptly pay those fees.

    It is not "fees" that are problem, but policies that don't work.

    fees go up, yet the backlog remains. Strange.

    It is good to know that I am the only one struggling to come up with $400 to $1000 to submit my documents for myself and my child.
    I have a very good job and an excellent education but somtimes it is hard to make it through. I do pay taxes to the government and I also pay my property taxes and fees - so to say I don't pay my share is unfair - I just don't have a whole lot of disposable income.

    sheesh...it's obvious you morons have never studied economics....a service provided by a government is not "free" -- salaries and overhead have to be paid....if not by the user, then by who? Yep, the taxpayers....so, if you want your taxes to go up, then keep moaning about those fees....but if you like buying a new car every 3 years, then let the aliens pay the freight....it is only fair, after all.
    Would you really want to pay several hundred dollars for SOMEONE ELSE'S application??? No, you would not. So, let them pay. Too darn bad if it costs a lot of money....that is life.
    And, of course, if you added in some immigration attorney's fees, well, the cost would rise by a factor of at least 5. Who needs immigration attorneys? All they do is charge $250 to file papers...they have NO power, NO authority, NO nothing. But, just like those morons who send money to TV evangelists, there are those who fall prey to the siren song of immigration attorneys' promises...which are about as valuable as last week's newspaper.

    Actually, I have studied economics. Tell me Someone12 - what do you think the difference is between a moron and an idiot and stupidity?

    actually, in your case, they are one and the same.
    I did notice, that just like ImmortalE-Idiot, you did not provide any coherent response, in spite of your allged study of economics.
