Rally on Sunday Against Illegal Aliens in Tel Aviv
Member of Knesset Dr. Michael Ben-Ari will hold a rally on Sunday, in Tel Aviv against illegal aliens who sneak over the border to find work. In an interview
with Arutz Sheva's Hebrew language news service, MK Ben-Ari accused Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu and Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai of not doing enough to stem the tide of non-Jewish, non-Israeli immigrants. He suggested a special airline to return the immigrants to their indigenous homelands. MK Ben-Ari is a native of south Tel Aviv.
New reports say that the amount of immigrants sneaking through the border with Egypt is growing and that most are not refugees from war-torn Sudan but workers from Eritrea looking for jobs. Some neighborhoods of south Tel Aviv and Eilat have a significant percentage of foreigners.
