Dustin( not his real name) suffers to see his two children carrying the burden of his life. Because he is a failed asylum seeker in Malta, his children, born in the country have inherited automatically the same status.
For them, it means automatic exclusion from the essential social services.
A system that he denounces in the 2 minutes video below , stressing that he is been working legally and paying taxes for 7 years now, but he is locked in the country with no travel document:
“It is slavery by trick, not by force like in the past, it is by trick. Let the world know. In Malta, there is a slavery by trick…”
His worries have taken the shape of a powerless man who finds it difficult to explain to his 5 years old daughter why she cannot travel with her school abroad:
I don’t know if there is any God in this world. This is a Christian country, it is not an Arab country, it is a Christian country, they are supposed to have sympathy for families…
