FAR FROM HOME: A DISCUSSION WITH ASYLUM SEEKERS IN MAINE
April 25, 2023
Our goal was not to solve the problems in the asylum process – and we know they exist – but to meet six new Mainers who faced harm at home and who made their way from Angola, Cuba, Ukraine and other countries to Maine where they have dreams of making a home for themselves and their families and to contribute to Maine in roles such as nurses, accountants, geologists and engineers.

Admiral Johnson and retired senior U.S. diplomat Susan Thornton did not pull punches in their predictions about the difficult path the Ukrainians face in their war with the Russians.

A unifying theme that inspires Americans not to flag in their support is not evident. How long will the conflict last? How will it end? Listen to the recording below.

He revealed to us that he still can't quite believe that he goes to work each day in the splendor that is the US Capitol, in what he called one of the most interesting jobs in the world.
