NILC Statement on Negotiations to Trade Anti-Immigrant Restrictions for Foreign Aid

WASHINGTON — Kica Matos, president of the National Immigration Law Center, issued the following statement in response to reports that the Biden administration is entertaining Republican demands for more extreme anti-immigrant policiessuch as proposals to expand fast-tracked deportations nationwide, undermine asylum law, and curtail temporary immigrant protectionsin a foreign aid bill: 

The willingness of the White House to sacrifice vulnerable people is simply unacceptable. We call on congressional champions to stand up and do the right thing. Senate Democrats must reject these extreme anti-immigrant proposals, and instead work toward sensible solutions that live up to our legal and moral commitments to welcome those seeking safety.”
