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.

Advocates Walk Out of Virtual Meeting with White House over “Remain in Mexico” Policy

HeadlineOct 18, 2021

Immigrant justice advocates on Saturday walked out of a virtual meeting with the Biden administration to protest its plans to resume the contested Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” program, formally known as Migrant Protection Protocols, by mid-November. Before leaving the meeting, advocates read a statement that said, “It is not possible to make the inhumane humane, the unfair fair, or to breathe life into a deadly program. We refuse to be complicit in deterrence-based border policies.” The move comes after the Supreme Court in August revived “Remain in Mexico.” The program forced some 70,000 asylum seekers to wait in Mexico in often extremely dangerous conditions.
