WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Multiracial Activist, along with several religious and civil liberties groups, has signed a joint letter to the U.S. House of Representatives outling our concerns with proposed changes in immigration admissions determinations of religious asylum seekers.

The letter is available on online:

An excerpt: ” We, the under-signed organizations and individuals, urge you to oppose Section 101 of the REAL ID Act of 2005 (H.R.418) which would have a devastating impact on legitimate asylum-seekers and refugees in this country. This bill includes provisions that will make it much harder for refugees to get asylum in this country — and could lead to their deportation into the hands of their persecutors.”

A partial list of endorsing organizations is below:

American Civil Liberties Union
American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee
Anti-Defamation League
Bill of Rights Defense Committee
Center for National Security Studies
Leadership Conference on Civil Rights
The Multiracial Activist
National Asian Pacific American Legal Consortium
World Organization for Human Rights USA
