As Purim approaches, thousands of Israeli children and families grapple with poverty
Illegal African infiltrators continued to violate the terms of their administration detention Thursday and marched to demonstrate their demand for asylum as refugees, which is not granted to people who leave their home countries simply because they want a better standard of living.
They also demanded the release of other illegal infiltrators who were arrested in Jerusalem on Wednesday after they left the new Holot detention center near Be’er Sheva and stayed away at night.
Police arrested dozens of the protesters and took them back to Holot, where they are required to stay at night and must report during the day, when they are otherwise free to leave.
The influx of the Africans the past few years was a major headache for the government, which did noting to stop them until thousands of them began hanging out in Tel Aviv instead of the Negev. Official sprang into action and built a fence along the Egyptian border that has reduced infiltrations to near zero, but now the country is left with the headache of what to do with the tens of thousands who remain and do not qualify for the status of refugees.
