National Call-In Day to Protect Asylum Seekers: March 10

Don Davis/AFSC 

People fleeing violence or danger in their home countries should be welcomed with compassion—not met with overwhelming obstacles. On Tuesday, March 10, the Interfaith Immigration Coalition, partners including AFSC, and people across the country are calling on Congress to stand up to President Trump's attacks on asylum.  

The administration's efforts to dismantle the asylum system have included the “Remain in Mexico” program, denying asylum to those traveling through another country to get to safety in the U.S., and restricting who is eligible for asylum—making it harder for people to claim protection in the U.S. and placing many in further danger. 

Join our National Call-In Day on March 10:   

  • Call your members of Congress through the U.S. Capitol Switchboard: (202) 224-3121. 
    Tell them: "People fleeing danger, violence, and persecution should be able to find refuge in the United States–not be returned to life-threatening dangers. I urge you to support the Asylum Seeker Protection Act (H.R. 2662) in order to protect those seeking asylum in the U.S. from further harm."
  • Write to your representatives: Urge them to to support the Asylum Seeker Protection Act (H.R. 2662)!
