Dear Friend,

During the COVID-19 pandemic, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on this global crisis, our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We're bringing you stories from the front lines, and voices you simply won't hear anywhere else—but we’re counting on you to make it possible. Today, a generous supporter will DOUBLE your donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift goes twice as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to support Democracy Now! with a donation, please do so today. Stay safe, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Much has been said about the plight of the Kosovar Albanian refugees. But where do they go? Countries around the world are taking these refugees, including the United States. Originally, U.S.-bound Kosovars were to be taken to the sweltering, inhospitable Guantanamo Naval Base in Cuba. Instead, they are being taken to Fort Dix in New Jersey. We will take a look at the course of events that take place when refugees reach the United States.

Guest:

  • Nick Rizzo, Refugee Program Director, Amnesty International.
