People fleeing violence or danger in their home countries should be welcomed into the United States with compassion–not met with overwhelming obstacles to seeking asylum.
But instead of protecting asylum seekers and expediting asylum claims, the Trump administration has implemented several inhumane policies that make it even harder for migrants to seek asylum—from the “remain in Mexico” policy to so-called “safe third country” agreements to categorically denying asylum to those fleeing their homes by traveling through another country.
By making it nearly impossible for people to seek asylum, the administration is further endangering the lives of tens of thousands of individuals, families, and children.
Now is the time to stand with all people seeking refuge in the United States. Demand that your legislators protect asylum seekers!
