Housing is a human right

Migrant workers in New Delhi, India, sleep on the side of a road. As we have seen in so many countries, a huge percentage of the homeless are immigrants unable to afford exorbitant rents at the pitiful wages they earn for often backbreaking work. Immigration status & ability to pay should have no bearing whatsoever on access to housing. It is a human right & the most compelling need for millions of people in every country. Money for housing, not for war! And that holds just as true for India as it does the US & dozens of other countries.  (Photo by Kevin Frayer/AP)
