A country that welcomes migration

PLUS: The money for “Medicare for All,” standing with Indigenous blockades, and how CEOs act like closet socialists.

February 28, 2020             It’s seldom that we look to government for a model of how to be our best selves. But as we glance into the future and at ways to confront ever-expanding migration across the globe, the South American country of Colombia is providing admirable lessons for how we can treat refugees humanely and with compassion. In our new issue, “The World We Want,” we describe how the country’s government, led by a right-wing party, has opened its borders to Venezuelan neighbors fleeing an economic crisis at home.
