Yishai grants status to 257 children in Israel illegally

Interior Minster Eli Yishai on Monday approved residency status for 257 foreign workers families whose children were born in Israel.
The decision leaves out 118 families, whose requests were rejected. A further 260 had their cases delayed for the time being.
The ruling follows a government decision in August 2010 that set a series of criteria for allowing children to stay in Israel, including that their parents entered Israel legally, they have been in Israel for over 5 years and are enrolled in the Israeli school system, among others.
