#TakeAction – June 18, 2020
TakeAction Thursday to tell Homeland Security you oppose their new regulations on requesting asylum. Then urge our Senators to vote against McConnell’s unqualified protégé for federal judge.
🔶 Submit comments on new asylum regulations
🔶 Tell Your Senators to oppose Justin Walker for Circuit Court Judge
#TakeAction #1 – Submit comments on new asylum regulations
Action: The DHS / DOJ notice of proposed rulemaking making it harder to claim asylum at the border was published 6/15. Comments are due by 7/15/20. These new regulations are beyond terrible. They: create new grounds for declaring asylum applications “frivolous,” an extreme sanction that can ban someone from any other immigration relief; permit judges to deny asylum applications without the person ever having the chance to testify; ban asylum to anyone who has been in the United States for more than a year, with no exceptions, despite Congress CLEARLY providing exceptions (patently illegal); ban asylum to anyone who fails to file taxes even once or has ever worked off the books. The worst parts of the new asylum regulation are the attempts to totally rewrite asylum law.
