Stop the Trump Administration from Abolishing Asylum
The Trump administration proposed a devastating new rule that guts protections for asylum seekers in the United States, including for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and HIV-positive (LGBTQ/H) people fleeing life-threatening persecution. We are calling on everyone who cares about the rights of LGBTQ/H asylum seekers to submit a comment opposing this rule. This is your opportunity to make your voice heard!
The window to submit public comments has closed.

The government must afford the public an opportunity to comment on the proposed rule and then must review and respond to each unique comment before enacting the rule. To slow implementation of the rule, we are calling on everyone who cares about the rights of LGBTQ/H asylum seekers to submit a comment.
If you are an LGBTQ organization, legal service provider, or other interested party that plans to submit a detailed comment addressing the rule, please download our more comprehensive template available here.
