Group Identifies Possible Migrant Human Remains Along the Border

In a special broadcast from the Arizona-Sonora border, Democracy Now! looks at how the bodies and bones of more than 3,000 people have been found in the Sonoran Desert since 2001.

They also speak with Robin Reineke, the co-founder of the Tucson-based organization Colibrí Center for Human Rights.

Colibrí Center is dedicated to identifying the remains of people passing through the desert and, since its founding, has identified at least 100 migrants through meticulous forensic work and DNA data collection of people's remains and other migrants who are family members who are alive.

In 2018, it launched the Bring Them Back Campaign to call for dignity and demand justice for disappeared migrants and their families.
