Netanyahu Condemns African Asylum Protesters as ‘Illegal Infiltrators’, Favors Incarcerating Them Indefinitely

leave a comment »

Three weeks ago, controversial new legislation was passed which  would permit Israeli authorities to hold migrants who didn’t  possess valid visas ‘indefinitely’.

Approximately 60,000 migrants from Eritrea and Sudan, among other  nations, have passed into Israel since 2006, according to  authorities. A border fence, since constructed, has helped to  stem the flow from Egypt.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told members of his  Likud party on Monday that: “Demonstrations won’t help  them.”

“These are illegal infiltrators seeking work,”
he added.

Human rights organizations believe that it would be dangerous for  the migrants to be deported back to their home countries as their  lives could be at risk. Many are not just migrants but asylum  seekers.

“We have fled persecution, dictatorships, civil wars and  genocides,”
Dawud, an Eritrean asylum-seeker partaking in  the mass demo, told AFP on Sunday.
