Tell Biden: Seeking Asylum is a legal right.
The Biden administration has proposed a rule that would unlawfully deny asylum to people seeking protection at the southern border who don't first wait to apply for asylum in Mexico or other countries they passed through — despite the fact that many of these countries don't have working asylum systems. In doing so, President Biden broke a direct campaign promise.
This new asylum ban is, at its core, Trump’s asylum bans. It will leave the most vulnerable people in much the same position as Trump’s policy did — at risk and unfairly denied the protection of asylum for reasons that have nothing to do with their need for refuge. Adding a mobile app and tinkering with the details of the ban can’t fix its fundamental problems.
Whether from President Trump or President Biden, these asylum bans are illegal: Send a message to President Biden now and tell him not to move forward with this asylum ban.
