African Migrants Take to the Streets to Demand Israel Consider Asylum Requests

Human rights groups assert open detention center no different from jail. 'I didn't come for $3,500," says one refugee about government exit grant.

An estimated 1,000 Sudanese and Eritrean migrants, along with Israeli human rights activists, marched through the streets of Tel Aviv on Saturday night to urge the government to consider the asylum requests of migrants from Africa and release the approximately 3,000 held in Israeli custody.
