NETWORK Advocates Tell President Biden: End Title 42
July 16, 2021
Yesterday, Grassroots Mobilization Coordinator Sister Emily TeKolste, SP and Government Relations Director Ronnate Asirwatham delivered a petition to the White House telling President Biden to End Title 42.
Title 42 has no true medical basis and is causing harm to our immigrant siblings at the southern border. The order also violates the internationally recognized right to seek asylum. Thank you to over 1,600 NETWORK members and supporters that signed the petition urging the Biden Administration to end Title 42 and protect the dignity of immigrants and asylum seekers.
Please keep your campaign promises regarding people at our Southern Boarder seeking to enter the country.
Refugees do not want to leave the home of their birth. They leave under duress. They must be allowed to enter into a safe place and make their case. Title 42 does not allow them that.
Our treatment of the migrants at the southern border of our country is a litmus test for what our country’s priorities are. Please help the migrants every way possible.
I urge President Biden to rescind Title 42.
Every human being is made in the image and likeness of God.
And every human being is vulnerable to forces of devastation and the ravages of injustice that make life unbearable.
Discrimination and rejection, especially when people are in extreme trauma, is inhumane, unjust, and completely unacceptable.
I urge President Biden to pursue the righteous way by ending Title 42.
End title 42. It has no medical basis.
