The waiting room

Monday, August 5, 2019 - 4:23pm


Today we launch a weeklong series, The Waiting Room, by The World's immigration editor Monica Campbell. Asylum-seeking migrants are waiting to have their cases heard for uncertain periods of time. We learn what's it like for them at different stages of the wait, from the perspective of migrants who've just arrived at the border and from those who've been waiting more than a year.
