Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

The Immigration Service’s and Border Patrol’s crackdown on illegal crossings along the US-Mexico divide has had a profound effect up and down the 2,000- mile long border. But a new report suggests that it is also having an impact on the way people die along the border.

Guest:
• Nestor Rodriguez, the co-author of a new study called Death at the Border and the co-director of the Center for Immigration Research at the University of Houston in Texas.
