Evelyn Cruz, a professor at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, is quoted in the Feb. 1 Arizona Republic in an article headlined "Migrants may face fee hikes: Costs to be citizen could increase 66%."
The article, written by Mike Madden, of the Republic Washington Bureau, states that immigrants soon may have to pay much more to become U.S. citizens, get permission to work here or bring their relatives into the country.
Cruz is director of the Immigration Law and Policy Clinic, which represents about 15 immigrant children who have been abused or neglected in the United States and need permission to live here without their parents.
She told The Republic that the fee changes would increase the total fees the clinic pays to $1,360 from $585.
"I'm not charging one penny to these kids; we are doing this because of our humanitarian purpose," Cruz told The Republic. "It's a good thing to do. But $1,400, we cannot pay for."
