Detaining children is unacceptable. Separating families is unacceptable. Preventing asylum seekers from receiving rightful protections under U.S. law is unacceptable. Discussion of immigration policy in racist terms and harmful rhetoric is unacceptable. tahirih.org/buildingbridges

In early 2019, the administration issued a legal decision that forces asylum seekers to return to Mexico, a decision that will have serious negative impacts on the lives and cases of numerous individuals. Asylum seekers will not be able to access trained attorneys to assist them in navigating complex legal cases, which will cause the majority to lose their cases even if they qualify under the law. Furthermore, they face possibly more violence in dangerous living conditions while in Mexico before returning to the U.S. This means that women and girls who cannot find safety in their own countries, who have fled for their lives, and who are relying on the U.S. to follow international law, could be sent back to face further violent abuse and even death. We MUST NOT turn our backs on our most vulnerable. We must oppose the elimination of protections for immigrant and refugee survivors of violence. Visit tahirih.org/buildingbridges to learn more and get involved!

As a nation, we have long committed to protecting immigrant and refugee survivors of violence and persecution from what they would face if they stayed or returned home. These courageous individuals are risking their lives to get to the U.S. and are relying on us to not only uphold our own laws and treaties, but to embody the American values that serve as a beacon of hope to them and their families. Now, those laws and values are under attack, and violate not only our national, but international obligations. We must not become numb to the gravity of the situation before us. We must not allow the dehumanization of asylum seekers to become normalized. We must stand up. We must fight for what’s right. We must not be silent.

Dear Friend,

Over the past few years, we’ve seen unprecedented attacks on our most vulnerable. We’ve collectively witnessed the current administration strip away protections for immigrant survivors of violence, heard harmful anti-immigrant rhetoric, watched as children were ripped from their parents’ arms, and become further divided as a people.

As a nation, we have long committed to protecting immigrant and refugee survivors of violence and persecution from what they would face if they stayed or returned home. These courageous individuals are risking their lives to get to the U.S. and are relying on us to not only uphold U.S. laws and international treaties, but to embody the American values that serve as a beacon of hope to them and their families.

We must not allow the dehumanization of asylum seekers to become normalized.

Please join me in my support of courageous women, children, and families that risk their safety and leave behind all they know to create a better life – not only for themselves, but for generations to come.

Since 1997, the Tahirih Justice Center has answered more than 27,000 pleas for help from courageous immigrant women and girls who refuse to be victims of violence. Tahirih’s holistic model for protection combines free legal services and social services case management with bridge-building non-partisan policy advocacy and research-based training and education.

Each and every one of us has a significant part to play to ensure that as a nation, we do not settle for inhumane treatment of those courageously coming to our door in search of safety.

Here are a few steps you can take to join the fight:

  • Make a donation to the Tahirih Justice Center which helps women and girls fleeing gender-based violence and advocates on their behalf in communities, courts, and Congress.
  • Follow the Tahirih Justice Center on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to stay up-to-date on breaking news and ways to get involved.
  • Download the Tahirih Justice Center’s Digital Toolkit featuring graphics, social media posts, emails, and talking points to use the power of your voice and your social network to increase awareness, raise funds, and motivate your friends and family to join Team Tahirih.
  • Contact your Senators and Representative to express your concern for asylum seekers fleeing gender-based violence. You can find your congressperson’s contact information here, and use the following script if it helps you: “Hello. My name is _______ and I live in (City, State). I am calling to ask Senator/Representative ________ to oppose family detention, the treatment of asylum seekers at the border, and the enforcement of regulations that limit access to asylum.

In solidarity,
