SUPPORT DEFENDING ASYLUM!

Asylum is under imminent threat. 

A bipartisan group of Senators is negotiating a deal to pass funding for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan in exchange for extreme, permanent changes to U.S. immigration and asylum law. Now, the White House has signaled support for trading away refugee protections. This tradeoff would destroy life-saving protections for people seeking safety and increase chaos at the U.S.-Mexico border, as well as expand fast-track deportations of immigrants in the U.S.

We need your help to urge lawmakers to reject bad-faith deals meant to make it impossible to seek safety in the U.S. and deport people back to danger. 

Tell your members of Congress: Do NOT accept extreme anti-asylum and anti-immigrant measures!

We need outreach to both your Senators and House Representatives.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Call the Congressional Switchboard: (202) 224-3121
  • Ask to be transferred to your Senator’s office. 
  • Call twice more, and ask to be transferred to your second Senator and then House Representative.

CALL SCRIPT:

“Hello, My name is [NAME], and I am alarmed by efforts to gut asylum protections and expand the use of rapid deportation proceedings for immigrants in the U.S. in exchange for unrelated funding for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan. 

I urge [Senator/Rep. NAME] to reject any proposal that would take away the right to seek asylum or harm immigrants in our communities. It is unacceptable to agree to anti-immigrant proposals that will endanger refugees and separate families. Any anti-immigrant concession is unacceptable and a betrayal of our values as a country.”
