Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Sunday requested that the cabinet discuss deferring or preventing the expulsion of 400 illegal migrant workers' children next week.

"From an ethical, Jewish and humanistic standpoint we must not deport these children. The State of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people bears a special responsibility to take these special concerns on these issues into account," said Barak at Sunday's cabinet meeting.
