The Biden administration has proposed a new immigration rule that, if implemented, would limit the ability for people to seek asylum in the U.S. The proposal would consider some migrants ineligible for asylum if they fail to first seek protection in another country that they traveled through on their way to the southern border (such as Mexico) if they don’t apply through other legal pathways, with some exceptions.
Under the last administration, a public health policy knows as Title 42, has been used to expel more than 2 million migrants since Spring of 2022. This policy will end on May 11, 2023.
We are disappointed that the Administration has chosen to move forward with this proposed rule and feel it enforces the false statement that asylum seekers are a threat to our country. One way for your voice to be heard is to join us and “Take Action” with Save the Children below.

is the political voice for kids
Denying asylum puts children in serious, unthinkable danger. President Biden MUST do better — and the first step is stopping the asylum ban.
The administration is moving forward with its plans to bring back an asylum ban. It’s devastating, inhumane and downright illegal.
If you send a message in protest today, your words WILL reach the White House – because before President Biden makes his final decision, he wants to know how the public feels.
The government will review comment submitted by March 27th — which means we can change this cruel policy before it goes into effect. Your message must be personalized to be considered, so make sure you edit our pre-drafted suggestion to include your experience.
It’s the voices of asylum seekers that we should truly be listening to. But they won’t get the chance to share their stories – so we can’t waste ours.
My hope is that the President will accept us,” said Rosa Lila, a single mother of five who set out for the U.S. “That is my dream, to be there with my children. It’s to have a better life.”
We have an opportunity to speak out on behalf of migrants like her – people who are doing everything in their power to build a brighter future.
But our window is closing fast.
So please, will you tell President Biden how this ban will hurt asylum seekers? Kids are counting us!
