As of Friday, Infiltrators Can't Export Money

Interior Minister Gid'on Saar signed regulations, Monday, that make it illegal for someone who illegally infiltrated the country to send money out of the country. The goal of the measures are to make the infiltrators leave with what they accumulated instead of regularly sending it out to their countries of origin.

Under the regulations, an illegal infiltrator can only take money or property out upon leaving the country. The regulations were approved by the Knesset Interior Affairs and Environmental Protection Committee last week, and are scheduled to go into effect on Friday.
