Since it passed a 2012 “anti-infiltration” law, Israel has sent 1,700 migrants to the Holot facility deep in Israel’s Negev desert. Israel's Supreme Court upheld the law in the latest hearing but ruled that migrants held at Holot for more than 12 months must be freed. About 1,200 migrants are being released beginning Tuesday.
