Call to Action: Protect Asylum

By USCRI May 22, 2024

The Senate is expected to vote on a bill on Thursday May 23, 2024 that would significantly limit access to asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border. This bill has been touted as “the toughest bipartisan border bill in a generation.” The proposed changes would constitute the most anti-immigrant and anti-asylum legislation in nearly a century and would almost certainly mean more children detained, more families separated, and more refugees sent back to face persecution.


This same legislation was introduced in December and thanks to the efforts of all of you, this attempt to trade away the rights of immigrants and asylum seekers in exchange for short-term humanitarian and foreign aid was voted down.

Whether or not you spoke out against this bill before, asylum seekers need your help! The time to act is now!


You can help protect asylum seekers by calling your Senators and demanding they vote NO on the Border Act of 2024 (S.4361).

Call your Senators: Flood the phone lines! Offices are saying that they are not hearing from their constituents.

Request a meeting with your Senator: Request meetings in-state/district next week. Get a group together and get to your Senators’ offices![/vc_column_text]

Your support can help protect asylum rights for all. Asylum rights are human rights.
