Francis arrived at the camp to find people lined up shoulder to shoulder, some holding their own hand-painted flags, waiting to shake his hand. Some were at the camp for days, others for weeks. Many have paid thousands of dollars to smugglers in the hope of being taken to specific European countries, where, in some cases, they are already related. But based on a new deal signed between the European Union and Turkey, many people in Lesbos have been brought back through the very waters they risked their lives to cross.
