Interior Minister Eli Yishai called on the Foreign Ministry and Justice Ministry to allow him to deport migrants from Sudan and Eritrea, following a police announcement Monday morning regarding the arrest of an Eritrean migrant over the rape of an elderly woman.
"The shocking rape is a symptom of a loss of sense of security among Israeli citizens in areas where there are high proportions of infiltrators," Yishai said.
"Completion of the security barrier, the installation of detention center and passing a law that will allow the imprisonment of infiltrators" hinge on moves from the Foreign and Justice Ministries, he said. Yishai called on the ministries to allow him to complete the task which he set out to fulfill: "to stop the flow in infiltrators and return them to their countries."
