involved in this migration. what would you'd like to see happen? my name is terry and corridor, or that's something i've heard you say. i mean, how would you implement something like that? the 1st thing is it has to be a humanitarian approach. these are people that need our support. they know nobody chooses to be a migrant. those are external causes. it is very difficult. they are hard breaking stories that you hear about the families. the children don't go through this process and a lot of people that are taking advantage of their situation. a going through their routes that they goal, it can happen without somebody orchestrating where they go and profiting from from, from this route. so what do we want? we want 1st with documentary and approach to make sure that everybody is following
