Interior Minister Warns ‘Infiltrator Influx on the Rise’

Silvan Shalom says Supreme Court ruling freeing detained illegal immigrants cancels Knesset laws, spurs growing infiltration.



Interior Minister Silvan Shalom (Likud) clarified on Monday morning that illegal immigrants who are to be released from the Holot detention facility according to a Supreme Court ruling will be jailed in the Saharonim detention facility if they return to Tel Aviv or Eilat.

Two weeks ago the Supreme Court ordered the release of infiltrators held for over a year at Holot in the south, and in doing so effectively cancelled the infiltration law passed by the Knesset, marking one of many times the Supreme Court has overruled Knesset laws on the matter.

A full 1, 200 infiltrators are set to be freed, but Shalom made clear they won’t be allowed back in Tel Aviv or Eilat, where illegal immigrants have been present in large numbers and responsible for a serious hike in violent crime. The Tel Aviv region just recently witnessed the shocking gang rape of a Jewish woman by infiltrators.

“We are trying to remove them to a third country according to the Supreme Court ruling and the decisions of the legal system, ” Shalom told Army Radio. “The legal system is acting slowly, it is irritating at times, and isn’t allowing us to carry out what must be done.”

Shalom warned that the influx of infiltrators into Israel is growing larger due to the Supreme Court ruling.

“They see that they have the possibility of staying here because we’re releasing them. The organizations are petitioning to the Supreme Court and in the end are canceling the laws.”
