Dozens of Illegal Aliens Arrested

Gil Ronen, Israel National News, June 11, 2012

Inspectors from the Population, Immigration, and Borders Authority (PIBA) raided a neighborhood in Eilat Monday morning and arrested dozens of illegal aliens from South Sudan, with the intent of deporting them.

An initial group of eight infiltrators from South Sudan was arrested Sunday.

The arrests follow a decision by the government to begin taking tough action against the flood of illegal work migrants who have been entering Israel on foot from Africa for the past few years.

Until recently, leftist campaigns made it impossible to take effective action against the immigrants. However, several high profile cases in which immigrants attacked women brought the media around, and the government and courts followed suit.

In an interview with IDF Radio, Interior Minister Eli Yishai disputed on Monday a United Nations statement that the situation in Eritrea is too dangerous for immigrants to be forcibly repatriated there. “It is safer than Sderot and the south [of Israel],” he said, “and there is nothing to prevent returning the Eritrean citizens to their country.”

“I prefer that there will be criticism of Israel while the state remains Jewish,” he added, “than for there to be no criticism and for us to look back in 10 years’ time and remember how we were democratic, took in all the infiltrators and made a mistake.”

“When we called the infiltrators in the south ‘refugees’ we misled the public,” the Shas party chairman added. He noted that infiltrators who approach the authorities of their own accord and ask to be deported will receive a plane ticket and a grant of 1,000 euro.

    South Sudan just became independent.  And now you already have South Sudanese sneaking into other countries?

      As does the US.  But the media won’t report those crimes if they can help it.

    Why Euros? African countries don’t use Euros.
    Having said that, the Euro is on the verge of collapse, so paying off volunary deportees with a thousand of them is probably a shrewd move; and I’m sure Shakespeares’ Merchant of Venice would agree.

      So they have something to get by with when they come to Greece or Spain or any of the other Point-of-first-entry countries in the EU.

    Jews are pretty good at controlling the movements and lives of the Palestinians, but they can’t keep out 60,000 Afrovoodoos out of “the Holy Land”?

    What’s up with that?

      One cannot speak honestly of the “tribe” even on Amren. . . doing so will get your post removed . . . so much for honest discussion about race and culture when it concerns the “tribe” . . .
      Best regards

    I just drove past the big ADL headquarters in Los Angeles, Santa Monica Blvd and Beverly Glen.

    They have recently added something to the big ADL sign, a picture of the globe.  I wonder what that means?

    Seems that what’s sauce for the goyim goose is not sauce for God’s chosen gander.
