August: Zero Illegal Infiltrations Along Israel-Egypt Border

Maayana Miskin, Israel National News, September 1, 2013

After years of efforts to reduce illegal entry along the Egyptian border, Israel has managed to go one entire month without a single illegal entry from the Sinai Peninsula, officials report.

During all of August there were no cases of illegal entrants breaking through or otherwise getting past Israel’s new border fence.

Officials are now working to encourage illegal immigrants currently in Israel to return home voluntarily. Over the course of August 168 people returned voluntarily to Sudan and Eritrea.

Minister of the Interior Gidon Saar welcomed the latest figures, which he said indicate “stopping the infiltration to Israel via the Egyptian border.”

“Every month there are fewer illegal entrants in Israel,” he continued. The new “third country” program, which will assist illegal entrants in moving to a country other than their country of origin, will increase the number of voluntary departures, he added.

Israel also faces a problem of foreign workers who enter the country legally, but overstay their visas. In many such cases workers have had children while in Israel, and have fought deportation, claiming that their young children view Israel as their home and should be allowed to stay.

In 2010 the government created criteria under which children of illegal aliens may remain in the country, with their parents, if they have lived in Israel for five consecutive years, learned in the Israeli school system in the most recent academic year, and speak Hebrew.

Last year, the Interior Ministry proposed a regulation to require foreign workers to register with a biometric database.

Recently, it was reported that the Israeli and Ugandan governments had struck a deal whereby the African nation would absorb some of the 55,000 illegal African immigrants in Israel, in exchange for aid.

That deal was denied by a Ugandan government spokesperson, but the reports have highlighted the Israeli government’s intense efforts to combat the phenomenon of illegal immigration, which has been blamed for a massive spike in violent crime in some of the country’s poorest neighborhoods, in including serious assaults and rape.

    I like the way Israel has handled their illegal immigrant problem. If he had done the same thing years ago, we would not be facing illegals demanding everything that citizens get.

    • I am shocked – simply shocked – that Sudanese and Eritrean Muslims would not want to stay with their peaceful, prosperous Muslim brothers in Egypt, and would instead cross the Sinai desert in order to subject themselves to the oppressive greed of Jewish Israel.

      Perhaps they were merely on their way to Syria. I understand the locals there have made Syria into a terriffic place: a glittering wonderland of ethnic and religious diversity and tolerance.

    Let’s exchange Israel Jews for East Coast, Harvard, NY Times/Wasington Post/new Republic, Neo Con National Reiview American Jews for a year while key immigration policies are being negotiated.

    Israel Jews are sane, Patriotic.

    American Jews are insane, treasonous on immigration to the USA.

    • bigone4u

      If America were a 98 percent Jewish nation, I guarantee you American Jews would be on board with a secure border and we would have one.

      Israelis are only patriotic to Israel.

  • Puggg

    Imagine if Sheldon Adelson was the same kind of American immigration patriot as he is an Israeli immigration patriot.

    • jackryanvb

      Don’t think we can put too much hope in union busting, Vegas shyster casino owners like Sheldon Adelson. Might as well put our hopes in to patriotic hard core porn producers… Probably Sheldon’s neighbors in Vegas.

      • Puggg

        It was just a figure of speech, but I gave you an up vote anyway. Sheldon Adelson can and will do nothing but harm us. Are there any patriotic porn peddlers?

          Capitalism attacks and destroys all the finer sentiments of the human heart; it ruthlessly sweeps away old traditions and ideas opposed to its progress, and it exploits and corrupts those things once held sacred.

  • sbuffalonative

    It just goes to show that a government with the will to act can secure it’s border. Our government clearly has no intention to act.

  • John Smith

    See, it is possible. But we do have more immigrants coming from China now than Mexico.

  • MBlanc46

    Good for Israel. But why are they importing “foreign workers”?

    • Many of Israel’s foreign workers were Bulgarians. It seems that unlike Muslim Palestinians, Bulgarian guest workers don’t go on stabbing sprees on mass-transit.

      • MBlanc46

        The only Bulgarian with whom I have any contact is a delightful person. I don’t know how she got here or why, but she has my permission to stay. While I’m not keen on the idea of theocracies, you’d have thought that Israelis would have seen importing foreigners as a threat to their Jewish state. But I guess the demands of capital trump even god.

    Yes indeed, a country for me but not for thee. Most, even most on this site, clearly do not comprehend the level of hate directed at white Christians, and Christians in general, that the hypocritical Jews that promote purity in Israel but hell and genocide for all Christian whites. Their actions contrasted with their words tell you all you need to know.

    • Dazed

      I agree. Good luck with this comment. It will most likely be deleted.

      • BonusGift

        Thanks; yes, I too would not be too surprised as it seems I’ve had an ever increasing number deleted. I do find it odd that this site also has the somewhat fetishlike need to promote and protect this group at our expense. The proper term I think is truth but our tribal detractors prefer to call it silencing ‘hate speech’. No real need for the 1st Amendment when you have a supposedly pro-white website moderator biased on the side of protecting a false narrative. It is somewhat ironic in that the moderator prefers to muzzle someone simply stating what to me seems an obvious truth.

  • BonusGift

    Can’t we just file this one under the category of “a country for me but not for thee”? I understand the need to project the thought that Israel is just another white country with border problems; but can we dispense with the façade for a moment? To whit, it is quit obvious that AIPAC, JDL, etc. etcetera want all Christian whites genocided, so let’s just stop pretending that if we just emulate Israel (and, BTW, in essence they construct that fence with our money) all will be fine and dandy. Try this thought experiment: What would have happened to our immigration system/laws if there was no Jewish pressure to genocide us?

  • Herman

    I thought Israel was our “greatest ally”.
    And aren’t Jews (like Mayor Bloomberg from New York) some of the leading advocates for diversity in the U.S.?
    So I guess immigration is good for the U.S. but bad for Israel.

  • jeffaral

    Why all jewish organisations in the USA and Europe support mass invasion in these countries while they are radically opposed to non-jews immigrating to israel????!!!

  • jeffaral

    How some misguided people dare to critize Israel??!!! They are God’s chosen people, for God’s sake!

  • Spartacus

    The Ghoim are not allowed the same, I’m afraid…

  • jeffaral

    All comments critical of Israel were deleted. Why?

  • John Smith

    An expansive study by the Pew Research Center details what it describes as “the rise of Asian-Americans,” a highly diverse and fast-growing group making up nearly 6 percent of the U.S. population. Mostly foreign-born and naturalized citizens, their numbers have been boosted by increases in visas granted to specialized workers and to wealthy investors resulting in Asian immigration surpassing Latino immigration in the U.S..

    Myself; I’m for a complete moratorium on all immigration, an end to automatic birth citizenship, an end to chain migration, mandatory E-Verify nationwide, an end to sanctuary cities, and end to dual citizenship, deportation of all non-citizens (though with aid to cushion their repatriation), etc…

    Since it is a fact that Asian immigration now surpasses Latino immigration and my position is decidedly nativist and bigoted toward Western Civilization, why do you ask me on this forum if my comment is serious?

  • Hunter Morrow

    One rule for the Self Chosen, one rule for the Cattle. How many taco benders snuck into the U.S. during the same time period?

  • John Smith

    I hear you. I really do. But the Pew Research Center does scientific polling and their terminology is as follows:

    “Unless otherwise noted, survey results for “Asian Americans” and “U.S. Asians” refer to adults living in the United States, whether U.S. citizens or not U.S. citizens and regardless of immigration status.”
    They randomly polled and did not bother whatsoever with the immigration status of those polled. Immigration status was a non-factor in this study. The U.S. is currently netting more Asians than Hispanics.
