C'tee OKs Stiffer Penalties for Aiding Illegal Aliens

The Knesset Interior Committee cleared for its final readings, Tuesday, a bill to increase the punishment for those who assist illegal aliens. If approved, the prison time for convictions will go from two years to three years.

Under the proposal, not only will those people directly liable for hiring or housing illegals face charges, but so will companies which are indirectly involved.
