      MKs Demand to Speak with Migrant Leaders

      MKs Rozin (Meretz), Chenin (Hadash) Michaeli (Labor) and Solomon (Yesh Atid) call to Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstien to allow the eight leaders of the demonstrating African migrants to enter the Knesset and speak with them.

      Rozin said, "It would be a disgrace for the State of Israel and the Knesset to deny the migrants an opportunity for a Knesset audience only out of fear of hearing different opinions. I demand the Knesset speaker allow us to do our job, even if we are left-wing factions."
