Shmulik Rifman, head of the Ramat Negev Municipal Council, said on Thursday that he opposes the construction of a facility for infiltrators in southern Israel.

"I demand that it be a closed facility," Rifman wrote in a letter to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. "5,000 foreign workers will lower our quality of life and raise the crime rate."

Netanyahu plans to bring the building of such a facility in the Negev, which would take in thousands of infiltrators from Egypt, to a vote in Sunday's cabinet meeting.
