The Seized Belongings of Migrants

We often hear that immigrants are treated poorly at the border, but the following slides paint an artistic picture of what immigrants give up when they are detained. When they are taken into custody everything they have with them is taken away. A janitor kept the items and then photographed them long before the large numbers of immigrants we see today. These pictures are a graphic reminder of the people being held. To see the slideshow click on the New Yorker link below:
