"I would try familysearch first. "
The problem here is that USCIS has visa files, alien registration files and other documents that aren't on familysearch and never will be, unless there comes a time they transfer the files to the National Archives. And it doesn't look like that is happening. For regular naturalization records you should always try ancestry and familysearch first, then the National Archives, but for many USCIS files there is no alternative to USCIS if you need the information, including documents with photographs.

I suggest that members of genealogy groups share this information with those groups, whether online or in real time. Don't assume that someone else is doing so.  I would hesitate to pay $65, let alone $400, for a document. I would try familysearch first.  Not all of us can fund our genealogy research so generously.
