URGENT: Call for immigrant justice today

URGENT: Call for immigrant justice today

December 15, 2023

We’re going to keep this brief because we need you to take action right now to stop a very bad deal from becoming reality.

Republicans are trying to force Trump-era immigration policies in exchange for support for foreign aid funding, and Democrats are considering caving to their demands. The proposals on the table would lead to the jailing and deporting of immigrants on a massive scale across the country and eviscerate the asylum system as we know it.

Immigrants and people seeking asylum should not be pawns in political games. Can you call your senator today and tell them to say no to MAGA immigration policies? 

Dial-in number for the United States Capitol switchboard is (202) 224-3121. A switchboard operator will connect you directly with the Senate office you request.


Dear Senator _________,

My name is _______ and I am from _______. As a Jewish American,

I am calling to oppose the extremely harmful immigration policies the Senate is considering right now.

These policies include would demolish the right to seek asylum, especially for people of color, dangerously expand immigrant detention, and result in massive deportations across the country, tearing immigrant families apart.

Passing these policies, coupled with even more funding for immigration and border enforcement, would have devastating consequences both at the border, and across country including in our state for countless people.

I urge Senator _______ to safeguard asylum, oppose nationwide deportations, and reject additional funding to ICE and CBP.

Thank you.

Every call counts. Feel free to email us at [email protected] with the subject "Save Asylum" to let us know how your call went and who you spoke to.

In solidarity,
The Bend the Arc team

PS: If you live in D.C., we share your frustration that you don’t have a senator to contact, and we’re advocating for D.C. Statehood too.
