Knesset panel on immigration gets new head

The Knesset Law and Constitution Committee subcommittee on immigration and Diaspora Affairs voted Monday for a new chairman, MK Zvi Hauser of New Hope.

Hauser will replace former MK Yomtob Kalfon (Yamina), who left the Knesset. 

"I am proud and emotional," Hauser said about receiving the post. "We need to make a national strategic effort to absorb the wave of immigrants brought by the continuation of the war between Russia and Ukraine. These immigrants can help bring Israel a brighter future. I will make every effort to push the government to fulfill this historic mission."
