On Tuesday, the Biden administration's U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced a new proposal that would significantly increase permit fees for legal immigrants to help cover costs related to the backlog of asylum cases that resulted from record-high illegal immigration.

According to the USCIS, the fee adjustments are forecasted to generate between $5.2 billion to $6.4 billion in yearly revenue. The department's current fee schedule is expected to yield roughly $3.28 billion yearly in 2022 and 2023.
