Minister of Absorption Sofa Landver of Israel Beiteinu, released a statement slamming the new budget for not supporting aliyah.

"This is the first time since the establishment of the State of Israel that aliyah is not on the government's agenda," Landver said. "The suggested budget is directly harming the absorption and encouragement of aliyah. I call upon Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to get involved, because he said that absorption of olim is a priority for our government."
