WE ARE: A Nation of Immigrants - New Haven 2018
The Participants


Lidia & Byron


Portrait Location: 
New Haven Public Library, 133 Elm Street L2

Arrival in the US: 2014

Reason for migration: I came here to escape violence in my country.

Commentary: I have just received political asylum which includes my son and my husband.  I am very relieved.  Now, no one is going to harm me or separate me from my son.  We escaped from something very difficult and I don’t want to go back to that situation again.  Here I feel safe and am happy.
