The U.S. Senate is currently negotiating a deal for aid for Ukraine that would create devastating changes to our nation's asylum and border policies. Their proposal would bring back construction of the border wall, make migrants ineligible for asylum if they transited through another country before showing up at the U.S. border, would allow the broad suspension of entry for certain types of migrants, revive the “remain in Mexico” policy that keeps asylum seekers outside the United States while their cases are processed, and more.
They are trying to make this package a condition of consideration of the Biden administration’s proposed package of aid for Ukraine.
Take action today and make sure our immigrant communities aren't used as bargaining chips and put at risk! Tell your legislator to reject any efforts to tie this package to aid for Ukraine.
