      Ketzaleh: Illegal Entry Created Crisis

      The illegal entry of tens of thousands of Africans, and the presence of tens of thousands more other illegal workers, created the housing crisis in Tel Aviv, MK Yaakov “Ketzaleh” Katz said Tuesday. Ketzaleh, head of the Knesset committee on the issue of illegal foreign workers, spoke during a special session on the issue held Tuesday.

      Tuesday also marked the beginning of his third year as committee head. During his time in office he has promoted several initiatives to fight illegal entry to Israel, one of them the fence currently under construction along the Egyptian border.
