Watching “Stateless” with Stateless People

This scene from “Stateless” depicts the office of the immigration official tasked with managing visa applications at the detention center. The disorder and disregard for migrants’ files is indicative of the way many countries worldwide treat the people caught in their immigration systems, including the stateless.

As Netflix mini-series “Stateless” debuted recently, I joined fellow colleagues of United Stateless to watch together via Netflix Party. United Stateless is a nonprofit led by stateless people in the United States with a mission to build community among the stateless and to advocate for their human rights.
