Miller Mayer immigration attorney Steve Yale-Loehr was quoted in Marketplace.org, “Immigration Fees Set to Be Much Higher in 2020.” He noted that the proposed filing fee hikes this year are historically high. “It’s normal to come out with a proposed fee increase, but the percentage increase on a lot of these fees is just much higher than it has been in the past,” he said.

Steve was also quoted in the San Francisco Chronicle article “SF man deported to Chad must return to US, judge says.” Steve explained that it’s rare for deported people to be returned to the US. “Procedures exist to bring people back, but foreign nationals rarely know about them, and the government is loath to allow it unless a federal judge orders it,” he said in an email. “Unfortunately, this administration is deporting more and more asylum seekers erroneously.” View the full article at https://www.sfchronicle.com/bayarea/article/SF-man-deported-to-Chad-must-return-to-US-judge-14951138.php.
