Israel Tries To Deter African Asylum Seekers

Israel is starting construction of the largest detention center in the world for asylum seekers. The facility, which would house up to 8,000 people initially, has been designed by Israel's defense ministry to "deal with" African refugee, asylum seekers, and migrant workers who cross into Israel from Egypt. At the same time, Israel is nearing completion of a new border fence designed to make it harder for migrants to get into the country.
