Take Action: Reach out to Congress to Protect Critical Asylum Protections

By USCRI December 13, 2023

Current negotiations surrounding President Biden’s proposed budget have included suggested rollbacks of critical asylum protections, such as raising the credible fear standard, increasing immigration detention, and instituting asylum caps. The White House has also indicated its willingness to limit asylum rights in exchange for humanitarian aid.

USCRI is concerned about the attacks on the right to seek asylum and urges both the Biden Administration and Congress to prioritize asylum rights and human rights in these negotiations. Pitting different populations in need against each other should never be the solution.
