Both the Trump and Biden administrations have misused an obscure, 75-year-old public health law — known as “Title 42” — to make more than 1.1 million expulsions at U.S. borders over the last 18 months. Under Title 42, U.S. border agents forcibly remove people from the U.S. without any opportunity to seek asylum. The policy violates U.S. and international law, and denies people fleeing violence and persecution access to safety. It’s time for President Biden to rescind Title 42 and restore due process.

Thank you for supporting asylum seekers by helping to end Title 42. If you have an extra minute, tell Congress to stop the misuse of public health laws and restore the right to asylum at the border.
