The Trump administration's new asylum rule violates both domestic and international law, legal experts and human rights advocates say. Critics say the rule, which requires asylum seekers to first apply for asylum in another country before being able to make a case in the United States, circumvents Congress and abdicates the Geneva Convention. Pictured here, a girl plays along the border wall separating San Diego from Tijuana, Mexico.

A couple more photos from the Galilee Center. A couple weeks ago I went to the Galilee Center(@Galilee_Center) in the Coachella Valley and took photos of the place and the people there. Galilee Center provides food, clothing, and basic needs to those in need; Which includes farm workers and asylum seekers who also need a place to stay. The center recently lost 60% percent of their funding because they began housing refugees.

Chios- Breaking point. With so many boats and new arrivals to the Greek Islands - Vial Camp, Chios once again is at breaking point with hundreds of people once again in tents and some completely without, living in the jungle and under trees! Today there was desperate calls from volunteers and those in camp for tents and tarpualin. Our volunteer colleagues from other organisations took what they could find from the RBB aid storage and bought more to compensate. We thought we had more tents but it seems we already gave them out to another group when the last lot of boats came. It’s so hot and people are really suffering. People are saying their drinking water rations have been reduced and as for showering; again there is a lack of clean, running and regular water. Our tents and tarpualin stores are now gone and its likely we will have more new arrivals and we desperately need your support; and these are the only urgent aid and basic necessities that these people need. People say the camp is almost at 2000 residents again in a camp capacity of 1000 where its already cramped and up to ten people can be made to share one caravan. Every nook and cranny by the containers is taken due to the over spill of people. They sleep with festival tents and tarpualin on top if lucky and completely without if not. This is how our new arrival children sleep! If you can donate something small it won’t fix anything but it will help provide some comfort for which we and the people will be most grateful... Ruhi Loren of Team RBB will be on the ground and in Chios this Friday.

Home. We share the sky. The same moon, same stars, same sun. We look up and see the same atmospheric dome above us. No matter where we find ourselves, we share the sky. What is home for the refugee? the asylum seeker? those displaced by natural disasters? those displaced by war? children whose living situations are compromised by abuse or neglect? young folks in the foster care system? Home. As I’m settling into another new address, I’m mindful of making a home here. I’m prayerful about how to leverage my agency, how to pivot my own soul work around /home/ toward empathetic activism on behalf of my fellow humans who also long for home. How do you think of /home/ for other folks? Those around you, in proximity to you, with whom you interact? Those whom you read about? Or see in your city or town? . . . #scuffytable #conversationsatthescuffytable #letstalkaboutit #conversation #home #refugees #asylumseekers #displacedpersons #fostercare #leveragingagency

These are innocent people tying to find a better life for their famies!!!!! these are not criminals!!!!!! . Rep from @paolamendoza - These are photographs from a report from the Inspector General. These conditions are abhorrent. These conditions are inhuman. And so I can only believe that the cruelty is the point. I’ve asked many people who have survived these detention centers why they still want to come to a country that has treated them so horribly. Their answers are essentially the same. They believe they will find safety here. They believe that even though they went through hell Americans are good people. They believe with everything in their heart that the American Dream can still be there’s. . . #asylumseekers #immigrants #iamanimmigrant #familiesbelongtogether #freedon #modernconcentrationcamps #enough #resist #fuckice #freethem #notcriminals #refugees #freetherefugees #wtf #inhumane #humanrights #activism #dosomething #compassion #love #vegan #oneworld #peace #dreamers #americandream

What’s happening in ICE detention centers is inhumane. People are being malnourished, abused, and frankly not treated like a human person. I co-wrote this song with @matkintyre in January about the children in these centers who were being separated from their parents and families. WE WILL NOT STAND FOR THIS. We need to speak out and let our lawmakers know that we will not tolerate how these people are being treated. This nation needs to take responsibility to help our brothers in need, to help the less fortunate. Ownership and exclusivity of land is selfish and does not benefit humanity as a whole. What we can do now is spread information. We need to let everyone know how serious this is, and how devastating. Please, spread the word now, and when it comes time to vote, take action and vote for those that will enforce policies to help asylum seekers. We are all human beings, and we should treat every person with respect and love. ✌️ . #ice #asylum #america #asylumseekers #immigration #detention #detentioncenter #usa #united #unitedstates #trump #donaldtrump #border #borderpatrol #politics #love #respect #humanity #mama #music #original #originalmusic #change #standup #fight #activism

She's crouched in the corner, covering her ears to drown the bullets. "Baba, baba, please don't stop praying." She listens whilst her baba sings her their song, the one he sings when the firing is too loud outside. The song they listen to for freedom. The song they listened to when they ran away from their old home. The song they listened to when the men took her mama and brother. The song they listened to for a better world, like the days before. The song Baba sings when he faces overwhelming sorrow and she's too young to comprehend. She crouches deeper and deeper in Baba's wide, broad chest, she can feel his rapid heartbeats, she can feel his tears soaking his beard. She is an innocent soul, she has her life and family taken away from her. But most importantly, she's a child who doesn't deserve any of this. She doesn't deserve to suffer. - Suffering (Zainab) . . . . . . #refugees #asylumseekers #crisis #humanrights #humanity #un #humanitarian #catastrophe #conflict #palestine #yemen #sudan #uyghur #india #kashmir #photooftheday #poetry #wanderlust #artofvisuals #photography #lovephotography #exploreeverything #agameoftones #fatalframes10k

projectartogether. We celebrated as a community in seeing the first refugee woman in hija

We celebrated as a community in seeing the first refugee woman in hijab take a seat in the House of Representatives, but we knew this journey to acceptance within the American people and wider community would be met with obstacles. Our president has reached an all-time-low with his statements dismissing the immeasurable contributions immigrants and refugees have made to build this nation from the ground up, and has further evoked and validated the racist notions many Americans still hold against our community members. We are here to say that these low-ball tactics will never get the best of us, that we stand in gratitude and solidarity with @repilhan, and ARTogether will continue the work we do to speak out against bigotry and destigmatize the refugee and immigrant image through art, love and community.

Trump’s new #asylumban bars anyone who travels through what is called a “safe third country” from applying for asylum in the U.S. the rule goes into effect today, and places further restrictions and limitations on eligibility for asylum seekers. Trump is specifically targeting asylum seekers from Central America and even Africa, who would travel through Mexico in order to reach the U.S. This new regulation violates Asylum law and violates our obligations under the United Nations Refugee Convention. We all have an obligation to Ban Trump in the next election! We all need to make sure we exercise our right to vote and make sure we do not end up with 4 more years of this clown!!! #asylumban #bantrump #asylum #asylumseekers #immigration #immigrationlaw #immigrationattorney #immigrationreform #immigrationlawyer #deportation

People matter Their names, their stories, their likes and dislikes, their favorite music and color, the trivial things and the most important things about these people matter. They matter. And don’t ever forget how we have been treating them. It’s one thing to disagree with the current administration or our immigration policies. It’s another to act on your displeasures, and grievances. To act. Voting matters, doing more than sharing a sad post matters, doing more than changing your Instagram profile. Find something your passionate for or curious about. And choose to help. Inform yourself on policy and how it’s affecting people more than just you. Think beyond more than just you, or what you’re gonna post, or feel inconvenienced by. Calling your congresswoman and congressman is a real step in influencing change. Think of all the free time you have during the summer- find a non profit specializing in helping asylum seekers and then volunteer. It’s not inconvenient for you- do something that can help someone else. These people have run and escaped from unspeakable circumstances- only to be detained, separated from their children- the one thing they wanted to provide a better life for. And they sit in deplorable conditions. AND THEM RUNNING from persecution and poverty and war and violence doesn’t justify helping them. We help them because they are people- because they are inherently valuable. They matter just like you and I. No comparison of tragedies among people declaring they need help or in dire situations. The current circumstance facing these asylum seekers are just reiterating a lie- they don’t matter, their wrong, they’re “illegal”. And it’s far from the truth. Act like they matter and do something. . . . . #useyourvoice #internationalrescuecommittee #asylumseekers #immigration #vote #activism #socialactivism

Those seeking asylum in the United States were effectively told on Monday they will have to find it elsewhere. The Trump administration moved to end asylum for nearly all those seeking it at the U.S. and Mexico border. It would bar anyone from claiming asylum if they had passed through another country en route to the United States, which covers anyone other than Mexican residents. #gay #lesbian #transgender #bisexual #mexicolove #asylumseekers #lgbtimmigrants #lgbtimmigrationusa #pflagjs #trumpadministration

Day 2 of Myrtle the Political Turtle’s Big Strasbourg Adventure. Another busy day: - listening to the candidate for European Commission President set out her agenda. More untrustworthy boilerplate; - remembering to eat a healthy lunch; - helping decide who of the Left will speak in the parliamentary chamber; - joining a meeting of Irish MEPs, to plan against the impact of Brexit & prepare for Irish unity; - observing the vote for President of the European Commission. A poor result, showing the need to fight extra hard for a truly fair, democratic & sustainable Europe; - coming home from work on a boat; - enjoying the summer ambience in beautiful Strasbourg (all turtles know the importance of nice things, even political turtles). More from Myrtle tomorrow. #europeanparliament #strasbourg #ursulavonderleyen #vonderleyen #stormursula #eutopjobs #europeancommission #eu #climatecrisis #militarisation #noeuarmy #socialinequality #taxevasion #austerity #asylumseekers #mercosur #brexit #unitedireland #turtlesagainstbackroomdeals #summer #boat #mockingturtle #myrtlethepoliticalturtle

julieshimborski. Every year, millions of people are driven from home by war, political

Every year, millions of people are driven from home by war, political unrest, economic upheaval, and political or religious persecution, among other factors. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reported that 70.8 million were forcibly displaced in 2018. An estimated 13.6 million people were newly displaced due to conflict or persecution in 2018. This included 10.8 million individuals displaced within the borders of their own country and 2.8 million new refugees and new asylum-seekers. To put it bluntly, that is roughly people 37,000 people per day and or 25 people per minute that are forced to flee their homes. In many cases, these people were forced to leave behind everything they know—including family members—often in a great hurry, and then are left to brave uncertainty and adversity, in search of relief and safety. Imagine confronting such a decision. Imagine having only minutes to prepare for your journey. 1.) What would you grab? 2.) Who would you take with you? 3.)Where would you go? 4.) How would you get there? These are choices millions of people around the world have had to make. ........................................................... 📷 # 1 @jbmoore 📷 # 2 @julieshimborski ........................................................... #immigration #immigrants #border #undocumented #unhcr #refugees #asylumseekers #forcedfromhome #humanrights #conflict #displaced #parents #children #seperated #journey #safety #cleandrinkingwater #food #shelter

(2/2) There is another term, asylum seeker, which is used in a similar context as a ‘refugee’ but has different, although not distinct meaning: Canadian Red Cross defines an asylum seeker is a person seeking protection from a country other than his or her own as a refugee but whose claim has not yet been adjudicated. Not every asylum-seeker will ultimately be recognized as a refugee, but every refugee is initially an asylum seeker. . . Konuyla alakalı diğer bir kavram olan sığınmacı ise Kanada Kızıl Haç’ın ifadesiyle diğer bir ülkenin korumasını bekleyen ancak süreci henüz tamamlanmamış kişilerdir. Tüm sığınmacılar aslında birer mültecidir ancak tüm mülteciler ise ilk etapta kabul süreçleri tamamlanana kadar birer sığınmacıdır. .
