- United States of America
It costs a person who desires to become a legal immigrant of the United States $1,010 in fees to apply for permanent resident status.
Considering that most people who live and work in the country which the United States receives the most immigrants from, Mexico, earn only $1 or less a day, many people who desire to immigrate to the United States do not have the financial capacity to pay these fees, which encourages illegal immigration.
Ask Congress to abolish immigration application fees so that people who wish to immigrate to the United States of America are able to do so legally.
The Abolish Hefty Fees Required to Immigrate Legally petition to Congress was written by Joshua and is in the category Law Reform at GoPetition.
