CONGRESS: TREAT PEOPLE SEEKING ASYLUM WITH DIGNITY
All people fleeing violence and persecution should be able to exercise their right to seek asylum in the US.
Every year, thousands of people are forced to flee countries like El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras in search of safety: escaping violence, criminal gangs, state sanctioned corruption, poverty, and economic hardship. The Trump administration has taken every imaginable action to try to keep asylum-seekers out, irrespective of whether it is legal, humane, effective, or consistent with American values.
The US should invest in the necessary resources to fulfill our legal obligations and hear the claims of asylum-seekers, and take steps to address the root causes of migration from Central America. They deserve humane treatment and a fair shot at their legal right to asylum.
Sign your name now in support of asylum-seekers.
