Tell Senators to Reject Bills that Harm Asylum Seekers

The Dreamers—immigrants brought to the United States as children—have become the quintessential political football. And today, the battle continues.

 

The Senate will vote on bills today to protect the Dreamers, but many of them include inhumane provisions that would turn our backs on asylum seekers—some of the most vulnerable individuals in the world. President Trump and his allies are using Dreamers, asylum seekers, and refugees as bargaining chips to pursue extreme immigration restrictions.

 

Under the Trump Administration, the United States is turning away migrants at the border, restricting their ability to seek asylum, and increasing criminal prosecutions. And today, the Senate may vote to expand these cruel practices further, punishing refugees fleeing violence and prosecution and families left in harm’s way.

 

Join with us in calling on senators stand firm on protections for refugees, asylum seekers, and families.
