    As political talks continue over the Rohingya refugee crisis, pressure is increasing on surrounding countries to accept them.

    While many in Indonesia have shown support, Rohingya refugees have been stateless and stuck there for years.

    Local governments consider the Rohingya as illegal immigrants.

    They're not allowed to leave the city, nor work or educate their children - a situation very similar to what they have been facing in Myanmar.
