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.

As Obama delays immigration reform action, Aviva Chomsky joined us Friday to discuss how "illegality" and "undocumentedness" are concepts that were created to exclude and exploit. Read an excerpt from her new book, Undocumented: How Immigration Became Illegal.

We also spoke with Pablo Alvarado, director of of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network. See more immigration coverage on Democracy Now!
