Rachel: the reason why they can NOT be deported is simply because 89% of them are "refugees" (unlike the government who says it is 0.05%!!). A refugee is an individual who can not go home because of danger or fear for his life. This danger is due to brutal conflicts, dictatorship, systematic imprisonment, repression, political elections, etc. WE Jews should be THE first ones to offer a kind hand to those people because WE understand what they have been through (read a little bit and you will soon find out that several genocides -worse than the Holocaust, in numbers- are going on right NOW in Africa). WE Israelis should stop selling weapons to African countries, because maybe then, we could complain about “infiltrators” coming because of armed conflicts….. This desert tent housing is a pure joke, just like the wall that will be built soon in the Sinai. These individuals are human beings who have human rights, especially when we can fully understand the challenges they have been through, such as torture, rape, brutality and more recently since in Israel: daily racism.
