Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that’s 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent journalism. Since our first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take corporate or government funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. Right now a generous donor will double your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Border Patrol Raids No More Deaths Humanitarian Camp in Arizona

HeadlineJul 31, 2020

In Arivaca, Arizona, Border Patrol agents raided a humanitarian aid camp run by the group No More Deaths on Thursday. One person was detained. The camp, located some 10 miles from the border with Mexico, is used to provide water, food and medical attention to refugees crossing into the U.S. through the Sonoran Desert, where temperatures continue to rise above 100 degrees. The raid came one day after No More Deaths published documents revealing the Border Patrol Union, a pro-Trump and anti-immigrant extremist group, had instigated a June 2017 raid of the same camp, calling in support from BORTAC, Border Patrol’s special operations unit — the same unit that was recently deployed to Portland to suppress protesters.
