Cenk Uygur talks with David Siegel, consul general for Israel serving the southwestern U.S., about the Jewish Israeli response to Africans seeking asylum in the country. Some Ethiopian immigrant women were even given injections that effectively sterilized them, according to a report in Haaretz. “I’ve seen that report,” David Siegel says. “I think those declining birthrates are largely because they’re part of a modern economy today. It has nothing to do with that report. But that report is concerning, and it’s being investigated.”
