Bennett slams migrant deal, says will turn Israel into ‘Garden of Eden for infiltrators’

Jewish Home leader and Education Minister Naftali Bennett slams a deal for the UN to help resettle in other countries some 16,000 African migrants currently in Israel in return for Israel agreeing to give temporary status to the remainder — estimated at around 18,000.

Writing in a series of tweets, Bennett says that the deal “will turn Israel into a Garden of Eden for infiltrators.”

He further described it as a “complete surrender to the false campaign spread by the media in recent months” against a plan to forcibly expel the migrants to Rwanda and Uganda.

“The original plan that the government agreed on regarding the infiltrators was moral and fair and we should act only according to it,” he says.
