Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. Please donate today in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. We can't do our work without you. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.
-Amy Goodman

Rights Groups Demand Temporary Protective Status for Refugees from Hurricane-Ravaged Countries

HeadlineNov 20, 2020

Immigration rights advocates are demanding temporary protective status — or TPS — for refugees from Central American nations devastated by Hurricanes Eta and Iota. The climate-crisis-fueled, back-to-back hurricanes impacted millions, leaving a path of destruction that killed at least 170 people. A spokesperson for the National TPS Alliance said, “There are no shelters for people to go, roads are underwater, hundreds of thousands are displaced. This is what TPS was created for.” A federal court in September sided with the Trump administration in its efforts to end TPS for several countries, including Nicaragua and El Salvador, affecting hundreds of thousands of people living in the U.S.
