Tell Congress: Defend the right to asylum!

Everyone deserves to live in safety and peace. But for the past two years, a federal policy known as Title 42 has blocked migrants from crossing the U.S.-Mexico border to seek asylum, a human right.

This Trump-era, anti-immigrant policy has further endangered hundreds of thousands of lives. Many migrants have been deported to the conditions they fled or stranded in makeshift camps. Others have taken dangerous routes—through mountains, deserts, and the ocean—facing extreme heat, violence, kidnappings, and even death.  

Now some members of Congress are attempting to indefinitely extend Title 42 rather than taking action to ensure that our policies heal not harm. And they must hear from us today!
