Specify Alternate Text

December 5, 2019, Adrian, Michigan – The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ recently proposed increases in fees for services to immigrants and asylum seekers could cause undue hardship for low- or middle-income immigrants and those seeking asylum. That is the point made by Sister Attracta Kelly, OP, JD, an immigration attorney and Director of the Adrian Dominican Sisters’ Office of Immigration Services. In an op-ed article in The (Adrian) Daily Telegram, Sister Attracta argues that if the proposed fee increases are adopted, “this will be the first time in U.S. history that those seeking freedom from unsafe countries will have to pay for asylum here.” She also argues against the proposed increase in fees for Dreamers, young adults who came to the United States as children with their undocumented parents and who have known only the United States as their home. Finally, she argues against the proposal to use the money raised by the fees to increase enforcement against immigrants.
