Oppose USCIS’ Proposed Fee Increases to Naturalization NOW (deadline March 6, 2023)

We want to urge HIAS PA clients and supporters to weigh-in on proposed naturalization fee hikes. The NALEO Educational Fund (a national immigration advocacy group) has created a microsite with a portal that will help you send comments directly to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS):

Take Action Now: Submit Your Comment on USCIS’ Proposed Naturalization Fee Increases!  You can also find resources such as FAQs on this site.

You’ll find a sample letter that you can tailor to your own experiences with providing services or otherwise working with your community. We would note that this sample focuses primarily on the naturalization services increases.

There is also a site coordinated by the National Partnership for New Americans (NPNA) with several partners that focuses on immigration services fees more broadly.

It’s important you let USCIS know about your position on its proposal. The deadline to submit comments is March 6, 2023.
