      MK Rozin Slams Putting Infiltrators in Holding Facility

      Chairwoman Michal Rozin of the Knesset Committee on the Problem of Foreign Workers criticized, Sunday, the announcement by the Interior Ministry's Immigration Authority that all the infiltrators who took part in last week's march on Jerusalem would be put in the Holot holding facility in southern Israel.

      The Meretz party lawmaker said that in view of past cases, the declaration, "raises serious concerns that a threat will be created to asylum seekers that if they do not enter the open facility, their visa will be denied and they will go into the closed facility, contrary to the opinion of the Supreme Court and protection of human rights in a democratic country."
