Stop Trump’s asylum ban from being renewed

We have a really short time to stop Trump’s asylum ban from being renewed. Under pressure from MAGA Republicans, the Biden administration has put forward a new version of Trump’s asylum ban. To go through with this would make it nearly impossible to apply for asylum relief- which is a guaranteed right under US law. The Immigration Justice campaign states: “This asylum ban, like Trump’s, will separate families and lead to the return of asylum seekers to harm and possible death.” The proposed rule is in real danger of slipping quietly under the radar and going into effect unless we step in and speak up. Don’t let our asylum policy be determined by pressure from white supremacists. That’s what will happen if we don’t speak up. We have a duty to say something now and we’ve only got a short time: public comment on the policy closes on March 27th.

Below we have links to additional background information and to make your own unique comment. (Duplicated comments will be automatically filtered out.)

Tell the Biden administration not to renew Trump’s asylum ban

Commenting can stop the rule. Trump’s asylum bans were heartbreaking and met with outrage. We commented knowing that the Trump administration was unlikely to consider what we said. But we believe public outcry about inhumane policies can actually change things with this administration. The only thing we have to do is speak up! Comments close March 27th- if there’s no response from the public, a new version of Trump’s asylum ban will likely quietly go into effect.

Here are some resources to help get informed on the subject, and the talking points can help get you started on your own comment:

Th!rd Act’s Stop the Dirty Banks! Day of Action (3.21.23) is happening here in Davis Tuesday!

If we are going to stop unneeded fossil fuel extraction, we need to stop funding investment in new fossil fuel projects! That means stopping the money that flows to the Big Four banks funding oil company investments: Chase, Wells Fargo, Citibank and Bank of America.

Join the fun with Davis Big Bank Action! @ noon where folks will gather by the Davis Community Church near 4th & D and then march to three of the Big Four banks funding fossil fuel extraction: Chase, Bank of America and Wells Fargo. There we’ll witness and cheer as some customers cut up credit cards and close accounts. And even if you can’t make it Tuesday, you can still take the pledge.
