The Invisible Life of Migrants

“After becoming a migrant in Europe, I’ve seen all kinds of people that the dominant culture and the state are blind to. These people are unwelcomed by a society that uses them only for dirty jobs. And I’m talking about the migrants and refugees in Europe who live to survive. They are the most endangered group of people that will be invisible even after death. Many of them crossed the borders with the threat of being shot. Many rely on small migrant communities while an entire society keeps treating them as non-existent objects. Many work from sunrise to sunset to earn a living wage or less than that.” (11/07/22)
