On the third anniversary of the insurrection at the US Capitol, Human Rights First calls for accountability for those behind the attack, a thorough exploration of far-right extremism's extent in the US, & united efforts to protect our democracy. https://humanrightsfirst.org/library/on-anniversary-of-capitol-insurrection-democracy-remains-at-risk/

“The insurrection at our Capitol on January 6, 2021, was an assault on our democracy, but it was not the high water mark of antidemocratic extremism in the United States. Since that event, extremists have worked to institutionalize election denial at every level of government,” said Michael Breen, President and CEO of Human Rights First. “Across our country today, antidemocratic far-right extremism is being mainstreamed into political discourse and discussion. We must understand and address this extremism as it directly threatens our communities and undercuts our system of government.”

According to reports from the White House, the admin is considering mandatory detention. Jailing children and adults seeking life-saving protection is inhumane, unnecessary, wasteful & violates international law. We cannot let this happen. : bit.ly/Call4Asylum

The U.S. anti-democratic far-right has exploited the Israel-Hamas conflict, fueling discrimination and violence against multiple communities, and promoting xenophobic policies. Read our new fact sheet outlining why this is a threat to our nation and democracy👇

Isabel, an Afro-Cuban q***r woman w/ epilepsy is a Remain in Mexico survivor whose story illustrates the well-documented experience of anti-Black racism migrants face in Mexico. Persecuted by authorities in Cuba for her sexual orientation, she fled for the U.S.

In 2020, CBP sent Isabel to Mexico under the Remain in Mexico policy, where she confronted racist intimidation, homophobic slurs, and violent threats. Isabel is still in danger, waiting on humanitarian parole for the threats she experiences as Black and q***r.

Isabel is one of many migrants who suffered cruel and inhumane treatment while being subjected to Trump-era policies. We can never go back. Demand your Senators oppose devastating anti-immigrant proposals. Call today to . https://bit.ly/Call4Asylum
