    Immigration Petition July 2018

    92 signatures

    Dear Utah Congressional delegation:

    We, the undersigned, call on the Trump administration and Congress to pass legislation that will correct the current policies of the Trump administration regarding immigration.   Through President Trump's executive order of June 20, 2018, the misguided family separation policy has been ended for future detainees, but there is no provision for a change of status of those currently held.   And the executive order still treats asylum seekers as criminals by imposing a penalty of imprisonment for those who present themselves to immigration authorities without proper documentation.  

    We call on you to work in Congress to pass legislation and urge President Trump to sign such legislation that will:

    Make it illegal in perpetuity to separate children from their parents when crossing the border. 

    Provide adequate resources to reunite families that have been torn apart by the recent policy.

    Remove the provision of automatic imprisonment of asylum seekers.
