In August 2015 the High Court of Justice canceled for the third time clauses in the Law Against Infiltration and instructed to release from custody at the Holot facility every person who had been staying there for more than 12 months. In response the government again amended the new Law Against Infiltration in February 2016, limiting the time of staying at the facility to 12 months only. Radical organizations opposed the bill even in this watered-down form, but in light of the message conveyed by the court no additional appeals were filed against the law in this new and limited form.
According to this law every new migrant will be placed in custody in a closed holding facility for three months. Men will be obliged to stay in an open facility for a year at most, and to report once per day. The law also enables illegal aliens already in Israel to stay in the Holot facility for a period not exceeding one year.
