Israel is offering illegal immigrants $3,500 and a one-way ticket home as it begins to crack down on refugees, who face prison if they don’t take up the deal. Rights groups are appalled at the move, saying Israel should be doing more to protect them.
Israel says the tough move is necessary to send a message to migrants that making the journey is not worthwhile in the first place.
