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. If everyone who tunes into Democracy Now! signed up for a monthly donation of just $10, we could cover our operating costs for the entire year. Please do your part today. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your first monthly gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to start a new monthly donation, please don’t delay. We’re counting on your support. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.
-Amy Goodman

Refugee Advocates Sue as Biden Admin Continues Trump-Era Border Policy

HeadlineAug 03, 2021

Immigrant justice groups are suing the Biden administration over its use of Title 42 — a Trump-era policy that allows for the expedited deportations of asylum seekers arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border, citing so-called public health concerns during the pandemic. The Biden administration says it will continue enforcing the policy, which could bar entry to hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers. Already, Human Rights Watch says over 600,000 asylum seekers have been expelled from the U.S. under Title 42 since March of 2020. The lawsuit was filed by the American Civil Liberties Union, RAICES and Oxfam, among other groups, which denounce Title 42 as cruel, illegal and a violation of due process rights.
