This month the Israeli government began a new program insentivizing South Sudanese refugees to return back to South Sudan or face deportation at the end of March. This decision came at the heels of a diplomatic visit by the newly-formed government of South Sudan, made of the rebel groups whose fight for freedom Israel has long supported by being one of the only nations to sell them weapons. Refusing to investigate individual asylum seekers' claims for refugee status, Israel claims it does not owe them the protections enshrined in the 1951 Convention on the Rights of Refugees. The Real News' Lia Tarachansky speaks with homeless refugees in the park where most live once they're released from detention, to Ran Cohen, the Director of Physicians for Human Rights, and Nic Schlagman, the Humanitarian Coordinator of the African Refugee Development Center.
