Unfortunately, with the rise of broader intolerant discourse, hostility towards migrants is growing around the world.
“Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home -- so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world."~ Eleanor Roosevelt~
