This November, New Evangelization Television (NET TV) premiered a one-hour documentary titled, Refugees: Enemies or Victims? This documentary investigates whether the United States is upholding its tradition of helping refugees.
The program sheds light on the crisis created by the Syrian war, which is one of the greatest humanitarian crises of the last 60 years. Over 400,000 Syrians have been killed, more than seven million have been internally displaced and more than 4.8 million are refugees. Turkey has taken in more than 2.7 million refugees — Germany more than 600,000. Refugees: Enemies or Victims? tries to answer questions arising from this crisis such as, how many of the refugees have the United States accepted and should they even be allowed into the country?
The documentary features Refugee Advisor for the Multifaith Alliance Shadi Martini, Syrian Activist Sana Mustafa, Donald Derwin from the Center for Migration Studies, American-born Muslim Rose Hamid, Mario Russell from Catholic Charities, and Vice-President of External Affairs for Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society Riva Silvermann.
NET TV also premiered a Spanish-language show in November titled Al Pan, Pan, that translates to, “To Call a Spade a Spade,” Al Pan, Pan is NET TV’s brand new Spanish language original series. It is hosted by Father Tomas del Valle, who has a long-running radio show, “La Tertulia del Siglo 21” and Jorge I. Dominguez, editor of Nuestra Voz.
