Welcome to The Jerusalem Post's live blog of Interior Minister Eli Yishai's tour of a migrant detention facility in the South. Our team of reporters and photographers accompanied Yishai for a firsthand look at his interim solution for African migrant population in Israel.

Yishai has been one of Israel's most outspoken proponents for deporting, jailing and otherwise cracking down on Israel's migrant population. The tour comes ahead of the October 15 deadline Yishai presented to north Sudanese and Eritrean migrants to either leave Israel or face imprisonment and deportation.
