      Bringing of Children to Knesset Deportation Debate Hit

      Dr. Yitzhak Kadman, Executive Director of the National Council for the Child, said on Friday that the bringing of children to the Knesset this week during debate on plans to deport illegal foreign workers and their children should be condemned. Interviewed by Arutz Sheva's Hebrew service, he said it was good that a complaint was lodged with the Knesset Ethics Committee and that the time had come for guidelines to be established to determine policy.

      Dr. Kadman said there are times that it's useful to bring a child to testify to lawmakers, but criticized bringing children who cannot express themselves.
