In a press release Monday, Meretz MK Nitsan Horowitz said that Israel must hand out legal work permits to migrants.

He said "we must stop with this self-denial and legalize work permits for migrants...they already work in many sectors across the country, so instead of chasing after them we must legalize it...its the only solution."

Horowitz's comments came on the second day of a three day strike being implemented by migrants.

On Monday morning outside of the US embassy thousands of migrants were protesting and calling for Israel to recognize their asylum requests.
