Discussion: Trump Wants To Charge Asylum Seekers A Fee To Process Their Applications

And he is directing officials to begin charging a fee to process asylum and employment authorization applications, which do not currently require payment.

Well, obviously.

Those tax cuts aren’t going to pay for themselves.

Of course, this is insane and preposterous, but it’s malignity signaling to his mouth breathing base who scream “no free lunch” while collecting their social security and Medicare/Medicaid.

Unfortunately, asylum-seekers are unable to follow this advice!

Scumbag. The only thing worse than asking people who have nothing to pay is for him to pocket the money himself. May he rot in hell.

You think Trump’s grandfather was charged a fee as part of chain migration?

Or the chain migration of his current wife’s parents – were they charged fees?

Oh, and Trump’s grandfather Friedrich was a draft dodger like Trump, but there is evidence that he was kicked out of Germany as a result. Wish we could kick the Chief Grifter out.

I have a feeling the process began some time ago.

Has anyone told him he won’t get a cut?

Trump also wants to bar anyone who has entered or tried to enter the country illegally from receiving a provisional work permit and is calling on officials to immediately revoke work authorizations when people are denied asylum and ordered removed from the country.

Well there’s is that pesky appeals process, so how much longer will Trump wait to propose the Orban model of not feeding those asylum seekers that are awaiting their asylum appeals?

Fine, as long as the Trump Crime Family gets charged for their upcoming long-term Federal accomodations.

If they have any money left. Hell, even if they don’t.

So once these regulations are designed there has to be a comment period, and then the final publication, and then the lawsuits. So not any time soon, and never if we still obey treaties.

On the other hand, the Adminstrative Procedures Act is apparently now a dead letter, so maybe it will happen tomorrow.

And maybe the people who pay an extra fee will get better results…

Something, something about civil asset forfeiture, maybe, probably.

This is totally in line with Trumpian way of thinking, everybody wants to join Trump branded golf clubs, double the initiation fees, refugees coming to America, charge them an entry fee, if they don’t like it they can go to a cheaper country.

Less expensive, maybe.

Nothing is cheaper than Trumpland!
