Shipped Out and Locked Up

On June 3, the Israeli government passed new laws that allows authorities to jail migrants for up to three years and sets the penalty for people helping or sheltering migrants at 15 years in prison. And just one day later, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the deportation of 25,000 migrants, primarily those from South Sudan, Ivory Coast, Ghana and Ethiopia, many of whom fled their home countries fearing persecution.
