Statement to the Italian Chamber of Deputies - Rome, Italy (07/11/06)

Executive Director James T.Morris

Globalization means that the world has grown smaller economically and culturally. Today, the victims of fighting in distant lands such as Darfur may well seek refuge on our shores. Poverty and hunger prompt the Senegalese man to sell handbags on the street, or the Filipino woman to clean houses in Rome. Every year hundreds of thousands of people leave behind their families in search of a share of the prosperity they have heard so much about in Italy.
