MK Danny Danon (Likud) on Tuesday asserted that South Sudan is an inhabitable country, describing repatriated South Sudanese nationals whose plight has been highlighted in recent media reports as "crybabies."

Speaking at a Knesset meeting of the lobby on the problem of migrant workers, Danon's comments come as immigration authorities have been rounding up and arresting South Sudanese in preparation of their impending deportation.

"I went to South Sudan," Danon said. "It's a country you can live in."
