"In every way. First of all, look at any immigration, even if you’re not a child of refugees or a political immigrant. You don’t need to live in a dictatorship to be a political immigrant…. It’s like the movement of immigration and movement because of economic situation … that becomes political immigration … and that affects my view of the world by making me critical and reflective about the situation faced by others – very simply, your problem is my problem.
