Tell Congress: Fund Human Rights and Asylum, not Inhumane Policies

The administration’s increasingly restrictive and punishing policies harms migrants and our asylum system. As of mid-July, and despite a court order, many children remain apart from their families, and the Trump administration continues to traumatize thousands with its anti-immigrant agenda.

Congress has the power to halt the expansion of these anti-immigrant policies – and to direct U.S. tax dollars to programs that help rather than harm asylum-seekers. Send a letter urging your legislators to withhold funding for immigration detention, deportation, and border militarization, and increase accountability and oversight of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection.

Start by entering your information below so that we can match you with the correct congressional district. When you hit “submit” you’ll be taken to the draft letter, which you can personalize before sending.
