STOP Teargassing Asylum Seekers NOW!
U.S. Agents are TEARGASSING families seeking asylum at the border!
Parents and children fleeing violence and poverty are legally permitted to seek asylum at the border. But the Trump administration sent troops to block their arrival, closed the border, and is now actually gassing immigrants and their children. All this while continuing to detain thousands of children.
☛ Call Congress—demand they hold up DHS funding until the human rights abuses stop and ask your members of Congress to investigate Trump’s attacks on immigrants seeking asylum!
“That’s not the law,” Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in an exclusive interview on “Meet the Press,” indicating that Congress will act if the president moves ahead with that policy. “They should be allowed to come in, seek asylum, that's the law."
Call Congress to demand they follow the law. Senator Ron Johnson is the chairperson of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. He has the power to influence what is happening at our border.
Our lawmakers have the power to stop this. Demand it.
