Halt deportations and welcome asylum seekers
Background: By warning citizens against traveling anywhere in the world, the United States acknowledges the life-threatening risk of transmission or infection of COVID-19. Despite these warnings, however, the U.S. continues to deport individuals to Honduras and Guatemala.
Protect asylum seekers
Urge Congress to protect those seeking asylum in the U.S. Background: Asylum seekers are migrants who flee their homes because of a fear of violence or persecution. U.S. and international laws state that anyone has a right to apply for asylum in the United States. However, several recent changes in U.S. immigration policy are preventing asylum seekers from finding safety in the United States.
