TAKE ACTION FOR HUMAN RIGHTS
TELL BIDEN: PROTECT *ALL* THOSE SEEKING SAFETY
The President’s announcement to welcome 100,000 Ukrainian refugees and send $1 billion in humanitarian assistance to aid civilians is a major victory. While we welcome this news, we must also hold Biden accountable to showing the same level of care to refugees and asylum-seekers who are not white.
Time and time again, this administration has failed to act to protect people from majority Black and brown countries — including Cameroon, Ethiopia, and Haiti. The U.S. revised its border policies to allow Ukrainians to seek safety but continues to deny others: just last month, over 165,000 people seeking safety were denied protection at the border, the majority of whom are Black and brown. This sharp difference in treatment lays bare the discrimination and double standards of U.S. leadership.
All people fleeing conflict should be treated with aid and compassion, no matter who they are or where they come from.
Tell President Biden: Everyone fleeing conflict and violence should be afforded the same opportunity for refuge in the U.S.
