Coalition Letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Members about Immigration Reform

Human Rights First joined faith-based and other groups of Refugee Council USA in a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee members opposing harmful amendments to asylum and refugee protections in the bill. More than 200 national, state and local faith-based, refugee-serving, humanitarian, and human rights organizations signed a letter in support of the refugee and asylum provisions in the bill. Human Rights First also launched a mobile site to bring policymakers, staff, NGOs and other partners comprehensive real-time updates on the asylum filing deadline provisions in the immigration reform bill.
