Without documents

This Roma man was born in Bosnia but has lived almost his entire life in Italy. Without proper documents, he is one of many Roma from ex-Yugoslavia who struggle with being detained by authorities. “I have lived in Italy for thirty years. I don’t have anything in Bosnia. I want to stay in Italy.  It is the first time I’ve come here to the detention center. I’m sick. I have no documents. I can’t work without documents. If I had them I would go work.”
