Israel Starts Deporting African Migrants

Israel Starts Deporting African Migrants

About 60,000 Africans have crossed into Israel across its porous border with Egypt in recent years. Israel says the vast majority are job seekers, disputing arguments by humanitarian agencies that they should be considered for asylum. Israel has started the deportation of these migrants by organising weekly repatriation flights intended as a stepping stone to dealing with much greater influxes of migrants from Sudan and Eritrea. Personally I don't understand how a nation built on and by migrants can treat a new wave of migrants hoping for a beter future this way.
