          Easier to multiply by 1.25

          Still kills me that $39,426 gross is OK to support a household of 8
          people or $15,612 is OK for a household of 2.

            I suppose the word 'poverty' isn't in the name for nothing

              Yeah, but I gripe is that is just above poverty what the government
              should be shooting for in allowing people to sponsor people. Hell at
              $15,612 gross income one person could barely support themselves, let
              alone two people. I think 200% of poverty is a more realistic amount.
              Plus I don't think cosponsors should be allowed. If a person wants a
              family, he or she should be able to support it on his or her own.

                Why do you care who supports them as long as it isn't the taxpayers? If
                the USC's friends or family want to risk being financially responsible,
                why shouldn't they be permitted to do this? In most of the cases I see
                here, the lack of US income is usually do being a student, or not
                currently livng in the US. Plus, in a large percentage of cases, the
                immigrant is more than willing to work to assist in supporting the family.

                  Just my opinion. This isn't like getting someone to cosign a car loan. You
                  are bringing a person or persons here to live with you and I just feel that
                  you should be in a position to handle it on your own. If it is just a
                  temporary thing due to being a student, then you wait until you graduate and
                  get a job.
