C'tee: 800 foreign workers' children should stay in Israel

After years of public struggle, the inter-ministry committee dealing with the status of 1,200 children belonging to foreign workers living in Israel announced its recommendations to Interior Minister Eli Yishai on Friday.
On Friday morning, the committee concluded that the State should allow 800 children to remain in Israel and deporting 400 children who have been living in the country for the past five years.
An official close to Yishai announced that the minister will not accept the inter-ministry recommendations and will request the government remove two-thirds of the children allow only 400 to remain. The official explained that, at best, Yishai will allow one-third of the children to remain in Israel, particularly those who will begin first grade in the coming year.
