Dear Friend,

In these times of elections, climate chaos and COVID-19, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on the pandemic or the uprisings against police brutality—or the climate crisis—our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We count on YOU to make our work possible. Today, a generous supporter will DOUBLE your new monthly donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go twice as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a monthly donation and provide us with support we can rely on all year, please do so today. Stay safe, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Protesters in San Diego Decry Denial of Medical Care to Migrants in ICE Custody

HeadlineDec 11, 2019

In San Diego, California, six people were arrested outside the U.S. Customs and Border Protection building to protest the denial of medical care, including flu vaccinations, to families detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement or Border Patrol. Tuesday’s protest on International Human Rights Day came after doctors were barred from providing flu vaccines to migrants detained inside the Chula Vista Border Patrol Station. Hundreds of protesters in Rhode Island also blocked the driveways to the Wyatt Detention Center, while in Kansas City, Missouri, seven people were arrested protesting outside of UMB Bank, which represents the bondholders of the Wyatt Detention Facility.
