This is a slap in the face. Today, on international Human Rights Day, the Trump Administration finalized the biggest rollback of asylum in recent history.
You probably remember us talking about this back in July, when the regulation was proposed. You may have even submitted your own comment in opposition.
We were hoping the nearly 87,000 comments would slow this thing down and that the Administration wouldn’t be able to finalize it before leaving office. Unfortunately, the rule is set for publication tomorrow, and will go into effect in January.
We can counteract this rule–and so many of the other Administration’s cruel and inhumane policies–if Congress passes the Refugee Protection Act.
This Human Rights Day, let’s rise up against this blatant rollback of human rights. Write to your Congressperson here:
