OUR DEMANDS

  1. Bring back all Haitian asylum seekers who were denied their right to seek safety in the US to pursue their asylum claims
  2. Increase equity in processing at the border (see treatment of Ukrainians vs Haitians)
  3. More language access for Black/African and Indigenous migrants
  4. Better resources for humanitarian assistance for Black migrants (shelters, etc.) that are culturally specific and accessible to Black people
  5. End Title 42 (and other deterrence policies that disproportionately harm Black migrants since Black people are always more surveilled/policed)

What Is Title 42?

Title 42 is a policy ushered in by the Trump administration to dismantle the U.S. asylum system, and has been used to keep out 1 million asylum seekers from entering the United States under the guise of public health. Keeping Title 42 in place puts refugees at risk, exacerbates chaos at the border, and serves no legitimate public health goals. 

Under Title 42, the Biden administration has continued to expel over 1 million asylum seekers back to dangerous, unstable country conditions including kidnapping and rape. The harms of the Title 42 expulsions fall primarily on Black, Brown and Indigenous asylum seekers. In recognition of the disparate racial impact inherent in the policy, civil rights leaders have called for the end of Title 42 in the name of racial equity and asylum law.

As a collaborative representing African, Afro-Caribbean, Afro-Latinx, Arab/Middle Eastern, and Asian immigrants, we know all too well the double standards by which this country’s immigration policies are applied to Black and Brown immigrants and call on the administration to quickly seek a stay for the injunction and to hold steadfast to their commitment of racial equity under their leader. We stand shoulder to shoulder in resistance to the continuation of racist, anti-Black policies that affect our membership.

What Can You Do?

It’s been one year since the world witnessed the abuse of Haitian migrants at the hands of Border Patrol in Del Rio and nothing has changed. Title 42 is anti-Black. Title 42 is racist. Title 42 has gone on too long. Now, the Biden administration is trying to expand it even while publicly denouncing it. Call the White House and tell them to dump Trump’s racist immigration policies TODAY! ​​(202) 456-1111.

HELP US END TITLE 42

This administration campaigned on promises to end inhumane, draconian Trump border policies, uphold U.S. laws and treaty obligations to protect refugees and immigrant children, and adopt COVID-19 measures based in science. We call on the Biden-Harris administration to fulfill those promises and reflect the values of this country by welcoming those seeking asylum inside the United States with compassion and dignity. Call the White House and tell them to dump Trump’s racist immigration policies TODAY! ​​(202) 456-1111.
