New Trump Administration Proposal Would Charge Asylum Seekers an Application Fee

The proposal also includes increasing fees for those applying for citizenship by more than 60 percent.

This is the mentality of a corporation.
FYI Trump: Governing is not run like a corporation.

1. This proposal was NOT created with the mentality of a corporation

This proposal was drawn up by xenophobic Trump administration apparatchiks trying to find ways to keep those brown people from staying here and becoming US citizens. This is the same sort of mentality that used poll taxes and literacy tests to keep colored people and very poor people from voting in the Deep South before the Civil Rights era.

2. Yes, this too. I stand corrected via expansion.
