Tell Congress to protect the rights of asylum seekers and end Title 42 at the border

Title 42 is a provision of law that allows borders to be closed in emergency situations to protect the public health. But public health experts have repeatedly stated that Title 42 does nothing to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and have called for its reversal. Under the current draconian interpretation of the law, the U.S. government is preventing many people from exercising their legal right to seek asylum.

Asylum seekers deserve dignity and a chance to ask for protection. Congress must call on the Biden administration to end the misuse of public health laws and restore the right to asylum by ending Title 42.
