Washington, August 5 (RHC)-- The Donald Trump administration will begin charging fees to apply for asylum, according to reports from Washington.  

"This is a penalty against asylum applicants,” an anonymous asylum officer told BuzzFeed News. 

The U.S. will charge $50 for asylum petitions, and joins Fiji, Iran and Australia as the only countries that require people to pay for seeking legal refuge.  Citizenship and Immigration Services will also hike up the cost of other immigration services, including an 80% increase in the fee for applying for U.S. citizenship.
