In response to President Biden’s remarks on news asylum restrictions announced on Thursday, January 5, 2023, Tahirih’s CEO, Archi Pyati, has issued the following statement:

“Expanding immigration policies based on deterrence, like Title 42 or the Transit Ban, will not fix what is happening at the southern border. The right to seek asylum should never be limited based on who can sponsor you in the U.S. or if you have the economic means to apply for these protections. People escaping from persecution and violence have an urgent need for safety and they are entitled to seek life-saving protection. The U.S. cannot continue to endanger vulnerable people seeking asylum by turning them away under Title 42. President Biden and Congress must work together to fix our broken immigration system and eradicate policies that place migrants in danger and limit their opportunity to seek safety.”
