Interior Minister Eli Yishai defended his decision to deport foreign workers and their children, saying that only a fraction of illegal residents of Israel are effected by his decision, Walla reported on Tuesday.

"There are 20,000 children living illegally in Israel today, not just 400," Yishai said. "Hundreds of children who should be deported are from Tel Aviv, and we've only been talking about them because they go to school."
