American Jews Demand: Biden, Protect Asylum

American Jews Demand: Biden, Protect Asylum

ADD YOUR NAME

Remember the anti-immigrant Senate bill we helped defeat this month? Now President Biden is expected to pick up where it left off and issue an executive order that could allow him to shut down the border, increase deportations, and end asylum as we know it. 

But the White House is still deciding. Now is our moment — President Biden needs to hear from American Jews and allies that we demand an executive order that safeguards asylum and creates more protections for new and undocumented immigrants.

Tell President Biden: American Jews and allies want a pro-immigrant executive order. Add your name.

Dear President Biden:

We are deeply concerned by reports that you are seriously considering issuing an executive order that could end asylum as we know it and increase deportations. We strongly oppose these anti-immigrant policy changes and we urge you to turn away from this path and to use your considerable power to take a pro-immigrant approach instead.

We urge you to issue an executive order that affirms the fundamental rights and dignity of our immigrant family. An executive order in line with these values includes policy changes such as stopping the use of immigrant prisons, preserving the right to seek asylum, and creating affirmative protections for new and undocumented immigrants.

Our values and our history make immigration deeply personal to American Jews. We urge you to issue a pro-immigrant executive order.
