Edward is a young man of 18 years and he is sleeping rough in London. Tonight the weather will get below freezing, yet Edward will be sleeping outside on the ground.

Edward is from Romania. Like so many others from Eastern Europe, Edward came to the United Kingdom seeking a better life. Often people come to London for work only to find a life with no income.

Because people from Romania are not entitled to benefits in the UK they end up sleeping rough on the streets. Sadly, in the U.S. we have a very similar crisis. It’s nearly impossible to find support services for undocumented people living in America.

I do understand that immigration is a very complicated issue. I just have a hard time grasping that countries that were built by people from other nations would allow even those in the country illegally no support out of homelessness.
