An immigrant's journey

This Afghan teenager traveled more than 20 hours in the engine compartment of a car to migrate into Europe but was spotted & arrested by Italian border police in Bari, Italy. Not only did this young man endanger his life but his journey typifies the humiliation & suffering that millions of human beings endure to escape war, find work, survive. He will likely be deported back to Afghanistan; he may well try again. Immigration is a human right. Find a way to add your voice to his struggle. (Photo by Italian Border Police via EPA)
