This Ukrainian mother and her three kids were twice denied the right to seek asylum because of #Title42.
They were eventually allowed in but it took:
1⃣ a five-person legal team
2⃣ a dozen journalists
3⃣ international outcry

Our partner @refugeehealtha started out as just a group of volunteers providing care for refugees in Tijuana in response to Trump's racist anti-asylum policies like #Title42. Four years later, no one thought they'd still be providing basic needs to refugees blocked by Biden. pic.twitter.com/yFK97CD5Hu

The day after the Biden administration announced its expansion of ‘Remain in Mexico’ we listened to the stories of families who had been turned away by the policy the first time around. What we heard was tragic. #EndMPP #WelcomeWithDignity pic.twitter.com/JzSsdvFus8
