Israel Confirms Sending Migrants to Third Country

By: JTA

Following reports that Israel was sending African migrants to Uganda, Israeli Interior Minister Gideon Saar confirmed that Israel is sending migrants to a third-party country.

“The departure for third countries, on the basis of agreements we have reached, is of limited scope, in the order of dozens,” Saar said Tuesday at a press conference, according to Haaretz, which reported two weeks ago that migrants were going to Uganda. “It’s a relative minority of the infiltrators who are leaving, but in this I’m not counting infiltrators who leave of their own free will to other, additional countries.”

Saar did not say which country had agreed to absorb the migrants, nor would he provide details on the arrangement to voluntarily deport migrants from Israel.

Approximately 55,000 t0 60,000 migrants live in Israel, most of them from Eritrea and Sudan. More than 1,700 left Israel in February.

The migrants are seeking refugee status in Israel and say they have come fleeing persecution and oppressive dictatorships in their home countries. Israeli government officials say the migrants have come seeking economic opportunity, and the government has granted refugee status to only a small handful.

    Israel needs to take care of the illegal alien problem and get rid of all of them. They bring crime, sexual assaults and diseases. Israel is a Jewish state and these Muslim invaders need to be removed since they are a fifth column and have made life in south Tel Aviv a nightmare for residents there.

  2. Ron Kall says:

    I'm still totally floored that 60,00 people could illegally invade Israel! Sounds like some people in Israel thought this was a good idea! More angry and illiterate muslims in Israel! great idea!!
