Congress: Do Not Reinstate Title 42

Title 42, a brutal policy initiated under Trump, strips people at the border of the right to seek asylum by expelling them to Mexico or their country of origin without any opportunity to seek protection under U.S. laws. After a recent review of the policy, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found the policy is not necessary to protect public health and issued an order ending the policy effective May 23.

The decision to end Title 42 was a critical victory in our fight to restore the human right to seek asylum. But now, anti-immigrant lawmakers are attempting to override CDC and the Biden administration by passing legislation in Congress that mandates Title 42’s continuation. We must take action: Tell Congress to oppose any interference with CDC’s decision to end the brutal, anti-immigrant Title 42 policy.

Your Message
Restore the Right to Seek Asylum and End Title 42

I'm writing to you about Title 42, a harmful and ineffective policy that the CDC rightfully terminated effective May 23, after finding the policy is not necessary to protect public health. I'm urging you to oppose any attempt to override CDC and the Biden administration through legislation mandating Title 42’s continuation.

The CDC was clear: Title 42 is not necessary to protect public health and should end. I urge you not to play politics with people’s lives: Don’t interfere with CDC’s decision to end the brutal, anti-immigrant Title 42 policy.

Sincerely,

[First Name] [Last Name]
