    Paul's Story (An Immigrant Speaks Out Against Amnesty)

    http://american-rattlesnake.org/2013/04/my-story-on-coming-to-america/

    When I first arrived in America in 1998, I was not sure if I was going to like it here, but at the request of my future wife, we decided to give America a try before we made a firm decision on whether or not to stay in America or return to Ireland.

    After getting over the initial culture shock (like driving on the wrong side of the road!), I grew to like it here more and more and to appreciate everything America had to offer. I then decided to begin the process of changing my status.
    As I began this process, I was amazed at the costs involved. Each form had to be accompanied by a check.

    In addition, my wife and I were required to take many trips back and forth to the Charlotte INS office (now under the auspices of the Dept. of Homeland Security) because there is no office available to serve the Asheville area, despite there being many illegal Aliens in this area.

    I went through so much paperwork; you cannot believe. It has taken me over 6 long years, and thousands of dollars, to get to where I am today. One form alone from the INS (ICE) in 1998 cost $470.00 to submit for consideration...

    Wonder if all the fees are in part a way to make sure that all new citizens are self-sufficient?

    They're intended to fund USCIS in part.
