New interior minister vows to deport migrants in Israel

Ayelet Shaked, the new interior minister, says she will work to return migrants living in Israel to their home countries.

At a ceremony marking her entry into the ministry and her replacement of former interior minister Aryeh Deri, Shaked says that the “State of Israel is Jewish and democratic and I will work to promote a responsible policy while meeting humanitarian needs.”

Shaked, the first female interior minister in Israel’s history, adds that she will “work to return infiltrators to their countries. We must defend the borders and the country.”
