Interior Minister Eli Yishai is the target of a media campaign, Yishai's spokesman told Army Radio on Sunday
"If you look at the different coverage in local and national media, it is clear that some people are trying to unleash a media campaign to harm Eli Yishai," said the spokesman. He added that unchecked illegal immigration undermines the "Zionist enterprise."
Yishai's spokesman stressed that the Shas minister's opposition to allowing the foreign workers' children to stay in Israel was due to his belief that their parents were using them to get around the Israeli immigration laws. "If we were talking about children without parents, orphans, no one would argue that we should them back to Sudan."
