Economy Minister Naftali Bennett responded angrily to the High Cort's decision to strike down key parts of Israel's migrant policy, slamming "the disconnect between the decision and reality," which he said will come at the expense of the citizens of southern Tel Aviv.

In a time of economic and political distress, the High Court has sent out an open invitation to tens of thousands of illegal immigrants to come to Israel, Bennett said, "because they will all be winners."

"We must abide by the rule of law but the court is chipping away at the government's authority, which at the end of the day bears the responsibility for the security of Israel citizens.
