|Self-Deportation a la Israel: Eritreans, Sudanese Refugees Self-Deport! |
14 November 2012
We have heard about it, it was a non-starter in the USA but now it is a reality in Israel without any shame: Self Deportation!
M. Romney introduced the term self-deportation during the recent US Presidential election as a solution to undocumented foreigners in the USA. Romney would make life miserable and unbearable to undocumented foreigners such that they would be forced to get out of the USA on their own! Americans who were rightly infuriated by this Romney's brutal and inhuman treatment of foreigners then dealt Romney what he deserved: A memorable defeat. But Israel is by far not America! The government of Israel has adopted the evil doctrine of self-deportation in words and deeds and according to Israel's Ynetnews.com the first victims, Sudanese and Eritrean refugees, a total of one thousand out of which a couple of dozens are Eritrean refugees, have already self-deported. Shame on Israel! Read Ynet report below for details:
1,000 African migrants leave Israel willingly
Officials say more Sudanese, Eritrean infiltrators leaving Israel due to fear of incarceration, trouble finding work

More than 1,000 Sudanese and Eritrean migrants have voluntarily left Israel over the past two months, according to data released by the Population, Immigration and Borders Authority.
Some 36,000 Eritreans and about 15,000 north Sudanese migrants have infiltrated Israel over the past few years. International treaties forbid Israel to deport them because their lives would be at risk in their home countries. They do not fall under the definition of refugees, so they have been living in Israel under the "collective protection" that has been afforded them.
Local authorities assumed they would want to remain in the country for good, but apparently this is not the case. Yedioth Ahronoth has learned that since the beginning of 2012 some 1,000 north Sudanese migrants and a few dozen Eritreans have left Israel willingly after asking the Population Authority for assistance in organizing their departure. In light of the request, some of the migrants were issued passports by the Eritrean Embassy in Israel and returned to their home country via Amman and Addis Ababa.
Israel has kept the news of their departure secret for fear that it would be accused of encouraging them to leave or forcing them out of the country.
Population Authority officials say the trend is expanding due to Interior Minister Eli Yishai's decision to incarcerate the infiltrators upon their arrival in Israel and prevent them from finding jobs after their release. In October, according to the statistics, 260 migrants returned to Sudan, compared with only 10 migrants who returned to the African country willingly in January.
"Nearly all of the infiltrators are seeking work. Their only goal is to send money to their families. If they will be held in a detention facility and not permitted to work, they will all want to go back home," one official said.
A Foreign Ministry official said more African migrants are leaving voluntarily due to newly-enacted laws against the hiring of infiltrators.
