Mutasim Ali, moments before he goes in front of a district court judge in Tel Aviv, Israel. He is appealing his “invitation” to Holot detention center. In December of 2013, The Knesset added a new amendment to the anti-infiltration law, that allows the detention of African asylum seekers indefinitely. 

Holot is a detention center located in the Negev desert, a two hour drive from Tel Aviv. Once in Holot the detainees have two options, to either voluntarily return to their country of origin, or stay in Holot indefinitely. Since January about 1,700 African Asylum seekers have been forced to quit their jobs, leave their community and transfer to Holot.

Mutasim is the first to appeal the administrative processes of receiving an “invitation” to Holot, without a due process or hearing. For four and a half years Mutasim has called Tel Aviv home, he speaks fluent Hebrew and is the CEO of ARDC (a non-for profit organization). As the CEO of ARDC, Mutasim is in the forefront of advocating for more than 50,000 African asylum seekers in Israel. His case was dismissed by the judge, and he will not be allowed a hearing. Mutasim will be sent to Holot detention center in 30 days.

My week is over with Burn Magazine on their instagram. This landed in my lap after two months of traveling, so it was nice just trying photograph my everyday here in NYC.  
Finishing with a picture of my roommate this Sunday morning. So now I am back on my normal instagram http://instagram.com/malinfezehai
