Israel's Immigration Authority Sends Hundreds to New Detention Site

After Knesset authorizes immigration authority to seize and detain migrants, Eritrean refugees holding expired visas say they fear to leave their homes.

The Population, Immigration and Border Authority detained 75 African migrants on Thursday morning in South Tel Aviv. The authority told Haaretz that it detained the migrants in order to validify their permits, but refused to comment on where the detainees were sent.
