As a Texas abortion fund, we are here to say that immigrant Justice is a reproductive justice issue. We call on our supporters to take action to stop the human rights abuses happening right now at the Texas border. Everyone should be able to move to seek safety or a better life for themselves and their families, no matter what they look like or where they happened to be born.
Right now, asylum seekers at the border are facing extreme violence and death at the hands of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s Operation Lone Star. You can learn more about how Operation Lone Star is hurting people in Texas at EndLoneStar.com. And listen to Lilith Fund’s Gaslit episode on “Abortion on the Border” to hear more about how Operation Lone Star impacts abortion access.
This is the time to follow and support the lead of organizations at the border fighting for reproductive justice and immigrant rights!
