STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

We now have a defense of parking refugees on a remote Pacific island. Australia has placed some refugees on that island, vowing they will never be allowed into the country.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Nicole Cordier, 68, is walking through the middle of a four-lane highway outside the northern French port city of Calais. She's there with a few hundred other townspeople, truckers and farmers, to protest a makeshift refugee camp that keeps growing just outside their city.

We recently placed a call to a refugee who's stuck on the other side of the world.

Each year, thousands of refugees are detained at the Stewart Detention Facility in Lumpkin, Georgia. A large percentage of these people end up being deported. But for families and loved ones of detainees, the ministry known as El Refugio can provide invaluable assistance. 

We hear from the director of El Refugio, Amilcar Valencia. And former guest  Hannah Cho tell us firsthand about the kindness she received from his organization.
