Toolkit: How to fight against unfair USCIS fees

Last updated 

What’s happening?

Every two years, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) reviews the fees it charges for immigration applications to see if any changes are necessary and appropriate to cover agency costs. On November 14, 2019, USCIS published a proposal to radically increase fees for vital applications. The rule disproportionately impacts the working class and non-wealthy.

How to take action

In our toolkit, you'll find out how to take three crucial actions:

1. Submit a unique public comment on the proposed rule on or before December 30, 2019; 

2. Reach out to your networks to encourage them to take action by sharing your opposition via social media on USCIS’s proposed fee increases and elimination of fee waivers;

3. Ask your Members of Congress to co-sponsor bills that will safeguard access to benefits.
