Republicans are trying to pass a dangerous immigration bill this week, and we have to make sure it doesn’t become law.
This week, MAGA Republicans are holding a vote on The Secure the Border Act of 2023 — a dangerous piece of legislation that would have devastating consequences for immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers.
Their bill is a political attempt to stoke anti-immigrant xenophobia and we cannot allow it to pass. Our staff and leaders are in rapid response mode, working with our champions in Congress and House Democratic Leadership to educate members of Congress on the dangers of this bill and urging them to vote no.
Bend the Arc has been fighting against bills like the Secure the Border Act of 2023 for over a decade, and we’ve seen the devastating impacts. This particular bill would require abusive family detention, resume building Trump's racist border wall, and decimate the legal right to seek asylum.
As Jews and allies, we know the consequences of being denied entry, scapegoated, and enslaved. Our history emphasizes the importance of treating everyone with compassion and dignity, regardless of where they came from or how they arrived here.
Your donation today helps us build a powerful moment of solidarity to disrupt the fear-mongering stoked by MAGA Republicans. Together, we can beat harmful legislation like the Secure the Border Act of 2023, organize progressive leaders into action, and advocate for a better country for all.
