Although the Trump administration has been inexcusably slow and bumbling in its response to the coronavirus pandemic, it has been laser-focused on manipulating this massive health crisis to advance its unjust immigration priorities.
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) is determined to prevent this administration from using the pandemic as a springboard to pursue its policies. Help us spread the word by donating generously to PDA today.
Trump has closed the U.S.-Mexico border to non-essential travel. Thousands of legitimate, legal asylum claimants are stuck in limbo on the Mexico side of the border. Many are facing major health, cultural, and economic issues during this pandemic. Since March 21, only two immigrants seeking asylum have been accepted into the United States.
Over 20,000 migrants have been returned to Mexico or their home countries. On April 22, Trump effectively suspended issuance of Green Cards for persons not already in the U.S. and most work visas. Now the Trump administration wants to keep the borders closed indefinitely, citing its public health authority.
Meanwhile, frontline health care providers who are immigrants are not just risking their lives daily. Should they succumb to COVID-19, their families can be targeted for immediate deportation. DACA recipients who are health care providers face the uncertainty of deportation even as they struggle to save lives in the only country they have ever known.
Immigrants, both documented and undocumented, who work in designated essential businesses (for example, meat-processing plants and agricultural field work) are at risk both for catching COVID-19 and for facing deportation of themselves or family members while seeking medical help.
Help PDA keep these issues in front of the public, and hold elected officials accountable for inadequate, inhumane, and unconscionable policy decisions that increase suffering and death during these traumatic times.
P.S.: Please remember to RSVP to Mike Fox to join our Healthcare Emergency Virtual Town Hall / Webinar Sunday 5/17 from 4-5pm ET, 1-2pm PT. Mike will provide all the call-in information.
Then, join PDA investing to elect progressives to Congress.
