Action Requested: Safeguard Asylum


On Sunday night, Senate negotiators released the text of the “Emergency National Security Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2024,” legislation intended to address defense funding and border security concerns. 


This funding bill includes numerous immigration policy provisions that harm survivors fleeing gender-based violence and puts many others at increased risk of harm. 


This bill would not only deter survivors from seeking asylum or reporting their experiences, but runs the risk of pushing survivors back into dangerous and unsafe conditions.
