Detention Camp and Fences                                

Israel is working to construct a massive detention camp for undocumented African migrants, but plans to house thousands of expelled people in a tent city until construction is complete.

In addition, the government decided to take money from other projects to fund a $167 million program for the completion of a fence along the country’s border with Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, a common conduit for immigrants from sub-Saharan Africa.
