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.

Detained in the USA: Behind the INS Curtain, Democracy Now!’s Noah Reibel airs the voices of detainees and their familes at detention centers.

Now the government is investigating allegations of abuse in two immigration facilities: Passaic County Jail in Patterson, New Jersey and the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn.

Right now, a report from Noah Reibel, who is a student at Columbia journalism school.
