Migrants Have Brought World Cup Glory, Will We Bring Them Justice?

Despite the Islamophobic and anti-immigrant sentiment that swept the United states and most of Europe over the past two decades, migrant and Muslim players led France to a remarkable victory in World Cup final on July 15.

Of the 23 players in the young French team, more than half are of African or Arab descent, an irony that led international media outlets to describe the French victory as ‘a victory for immigrants’.

On social media, people have been stressing the fact that migrants are celebrated when they bring glory, but discriminated against in many other aspects.
