Call on Congress to Save Asylum

Legislators must stop Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy from returning people to danger.

In the past year, the Trump administration has pushed back more than 57,000 asylum-seekers under its Remain in Mexico program, placing them at the mercy of criminal networks that prey on migrants. Already, hundreds of innocent people have been kidnapped, tortured, raped, or extorted—after they sought protection at our borders—because our government chose to send them into harm’s way.

This wholesale attack on asylum ends now. Congress must not be idle when people face death and torture because of our government’s policies. Call on your legislators today to urge them to completely and permanently defund the “Remain in Mexico” program and restore the integrity of our nation’s asylum system.
