Several days after the Israeli Supreme Court's controversial decision regarding illegal migrants, today (Thursday), Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited south Tel Aviv and spoke to its citizens.

“We are here on a mission,” Netanyahu said. “To give back south Tel Aviv to Israeli citizens. Israel has the right to defend its borders and to remove illegal infiltrators…People are afraid to leave the house. We will take care of it in 3 ways.”

“The first is the fence,” he explained. “I insisted on the fence and we completed it. Second, a much stronger enforcement against employers and lawbreaking infiltrators. Finally, on Sunday, the government will hear an overview of the subject and I will establish a special ministerial committee that I will head.”

At the beginning of the week, the Supreme Court ruled that a migrant who refuses to be deported will not be jailed for more than 60 days.
