Fundamentally Inequitable’: Democratic Lawmakers Decry Trump’s Proposal to Hike Immigration Fees

1/3/20 A group of Democratic lawmakers on Monday outlined their opposition to a Trump administration proposal which would increase application and petition fees for immigrants and asylum seekers, calling the plan “fundamentally inequitable and contrary to our nation’s values.”
“We are particularly troubled by DHS’s proposal to transfer roughly $112 million per year in immigration benefits fees to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)” they added.
