Israel and African Migrants By Robert J. Evans, Florist
Relevant to the immigration restriction/control issue is this news item, which ran at The Jerusalem Post:
“NETANYAHU: IT IS TIME TO DEPORT AFRICAN MIGRANTS”
“Netanyahu was discussing an initiative announced last week by Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan and Interior Minister Arye Deri to close Holot, an “open” detention center.
It is time to increase the pace of deporting African migrants, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the cabinet on Sunday.
Netanyahu said he has a three-pronged policy regarding getting migrants to leave the country, with the current focus being to encourage most of them to self-deport to a third country – which reports have identified as Rwanda.”
How does that old phrase go: what is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander?
