Tell Your Senators: It's Asylum Seekers AND Humanitarian Aid

Right now, members of Congress are now looking to secure funding for short-term foreign aid priorities by using the rights of asylum seekers at the U.S.-Mexico border as a bargaining chip. Permanent changes to U.S. asylum and immigration policy should not happen through the budget process, and we must speak out to ensure that populations in need of support are not pitted against each other.

Please call your senators and ask them not to compromise on support for displaced people. They must fund refugee and humanitarian programs, while also not creating new restrictive policies for asylum seekers looking for a safe place to call home.

Our system makes calling your member of Congress easy – simply fill out your information below, and we’ll connect your phone to your congressperson’s office. Once you’re connected, you can follow our talking points script below, or feel free to add in your own comments. 

We just need a few pieces of information to connect you with your representatives.
