The Infiltration Prevention Bill Lies and Reality

Feb 02, 2010
  • Description

The Infiltration Prevention Law, which will first be deliberated by the Knesset's Internal Affairs Committee on February 3, 2010, is one of the most dangerous bills ever presented in the Knesset. If the law is passed, the State of Israel's obligations to the United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees will be annulled, refugees who never committed a crime could be jailed for up to twenty years, refugees could be deported to their home countries in a manner that could endanger their lives, and the deeds carried out by aid organization employees and volunteers could become criminal. This report will detail the main components of the bill, and will refute many lies that serve as its premise.
