So far (over the last year). It will probably dwindle off over time now. Statistics are statistics, they just show what has happened.

With a $465 filing fee for 552,918 applicants, that is well over $250 million dollars...

Overall it looks to be below a 73% approval level, 78% for Mexicans (the high leader is South Koreans, at 89%, the low point is Jamaicans at 64%)...

USCIS is supposed to be self-funding, so that $250 million should be going towards their operating costs. What's your point?

None of these people should be here.

And who are you to say that? If you don't want them here, fine, then make them leave. Go ahead, right now, get into your car, go there and make them leave. I swear I respect a person a lot more that actually does something in regards to their beliefs than someone that just comes onto a random internet website to just complain.

400k and yet somehow the apocalypse predicted by the racists and nativists has not happened. The United States is still here and the daily lives of Americans have not changed. When exactly is the sky going to fall?

A law-abiding American. These are our laws, not just my opinion. These people are here illegally. DACA is basically amnesty in sheep's clothing.

Our laws DICTATE it. Its that simple. The policy implemented for this is an overreaching policy. Congress simply doesn't have the votes right now to challenge it in the SC. Once this regime is out of power it will end, it may even be redacted.

SMFH So you can't argue simply on the merits, you resort to using inflammatory names. Typical.
