"To the Street"

Lacking a state facility for migrants, police on Lesbos have been keeping new arrivals in the police station. Police turned others away. "They told us to go, they can't help us," said Narges, a 17-year-old Afghan refugee who fled Ghazni, south of Kabul, with her mother and sister. "We told them, we haven't anywhere to sleep. They told us, go to the street."
