In January I noted here and here that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was taking a stand against mass illegal immigration into his country, saying
We are flooded with surge of refugees who threaten to wash away our achievements and damage our existence...They are causing socio-economic and cultural damage and threaten to take us back down to the level of the Third World. They take the jobs of the weakest Israelis.”
This weekend he went further. Israel to deport hundreds of migrant workers' children By Edmund Sanders The Los Angeles Times August 2,2010:
Israel moved Sunday to deport the offspring of hundreds of migrant workers, mostly small children who were born in Israel, speak Hebrew and have never seen their parents' native countries. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the new policy was intended to stem a flood of illegal immigrants, whose children receive state-funded education and healthcare benefits…”We don't want to create an incentive for the inflow of hundreds of thousands of illegal migrant workers,”
The new policy is aimed at children of foreign workers who arrived legally and then started families. Under Israeli law, the children are not automatically granted residency status.
What a contrast to America! Even though these immigrants are legal, not only is there no birthright citizenship, their children do not have an automatic right to stay. No Anchor Babies for Israel! Given his premise, the Israeli leader’s reasoning is impeccable
“there are Zionist considerations and ensuring the Jewish character of the state of Israel….” To stem the flow of illegal immigrants, Israel recently said it planned to construct a wall along its border with Egypt. The government also has cracked down on employers hiring illegal workers, set up a special immigration law-enforcement unit and offered $3,000 payments to foreign workers with children who agree to leave.
(On Friday, Curb the African invasion Hagai Segal, 07.30.10 claimed
The rate of infiltration through our southern border has equaled the rate of Jewish immigration from the Diaspora. About 1,200 people on average breach our southern border each month. Multiply this by 12 and you’ll get 14,400 infiltrators a year—a number that is frighteningly similar to the scope of Aliyah to Israel last year: 14,567.)
H/T One Old Vet, which asked
American Jewish leaders and Jewish organizations including the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) routinely denounce Americans as racists and xenophobes who only want our laws to be enforced, our borders to be secured and who want the millions of ILLEGALS currently in the U.S. out! Where are these same organizations, leaders and the ADL when the Prime Minister of Israel calls for deportation of hundreds of migrant worker’s children because of the strain it places on s'illegal immigration and Israel’s Jewish identitys'?
Good question, OOV. But would rather ask: if Israel is permitted protect itself, why not America?
