UNHCR criticizes Israel’s terminology: They’re Not Illegal Aliens, They’re Refugees

UN blasts Israel’s policy towards the illegal infiltrators, complaining that they shouldn’t be detained & their refugee requests need to be considered.

By Elad Benari

 

The United Nations on Sunday night criticized Israel’s policy towards illegal immigrants, as thousands of them protested in Tel Aviv, demanding that Israel recognize them as refugees and grant them asylum.

The UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCR) released a statement in which it accused Israel of “sowing fear and chaos” among the illegal aliens who, it said, should be referred to as “asylum seekers” and not “infiltrators”.

“We demand that the government examine the asylum requests of the foreigners, and stop the large-scale arrests in south Tel Aviv,” said the UN agency, adding that while it supported the holding facility for infiltrators in southern Israel, it was not acceptable in its present form as the agency deemed it to be a long-term detention center.

Knesset Member: ‘Infiltrators bill – a different prison by a euphemistic name’

 

Opposition MKs say ‘Infiltration Prevention Bill’ is flawed and unjust. Disperse them around the country.

By Omri Efraim

The asylum seekers’ march on Thursday from the Holot detention facility towards Beersheba led to much criticism within the political arena. “The Immigration Authority is violating the bill initiated by the government, since if the facility is open – it can be exited and walked to Beersheba from,” claimed Knesset Member Dov Khenin. “Their behavior (Thursday) only proves what we have said all along – the government initiated a new prison under a euphemistic name.”
