Migrants face Israel deportation

Israel set to introduce tough new measures to crack down on migrants coming in from African states.

    Israel is set to introduce tough new measures to stop what it calls a flood of 'infiltrators' from seeking work or refuge in the country.

    Every month up to 1,500 people, mostly Africans, pour into the state.

    The Israeli government, however, says that this influx could destroy the fabric of Jewish society.

    Those migrants who are unable to find work, meanwhile, are mostly being held in jails or detention centres.
