Children of migrant workers "should be treated as Israelis," Kadima MK Nachman Shai said on Monday. Shai explained that the children and their parents should be treated with respect and "allowed to stay in Israel." In a statement directed at Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Shai asked "to ascertain that the government does not intend to deport those children of migrant workers who were born and raised in Israel."
