Yishai: Every Infiltrator in Israel Will Return Home

Interior Minister Eli Yishai said, Tuesday, "Every infiltrator in Israel will return to his home country. These are infiltrators, not refugees."

Interviewed by Israel Defense Forces Radio, Yishai said, "They said I could not return [them] to South Sudan. We passed a Supreme Court [test] and we returned [them]. They said I could not return [them] to North [sic] Sudan and I'll tell you a secret: We have already returned more than 1,000 to North Sudan voluntarily. We have returned dozens of people to Eritrea voluntarily. I will put them all in the holding facilities behind bars, where they will want to leave.
