Nationwide Tension As Israeli Government Issues Quit Notice To Nigerian And African Migrants, Sets Date To Jail Them All

The British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC, is reporting that the Israeli Government has issued a quit notice to thousands of African migrants, to leave the country or face imprisonment.

Isreal promised that the migrants would be given up to $3,500, for leaving within the next 90 days.

The report said the order however, exempts children, elderly people, and victims of slavery and human trafficking.

The report revealed that the migrants would have the option of going to their home country or third countries, but that if they refuse to leave, the Israeli authorities would have them thrown in jail, starting from April 2018.

The Israeli Government noted that the return of the migrants would be humane and voluntary, even though the United Nations, UN, Refugee Agency, said the plan violated International and Israeli laws.

It was learnt that a Spokesperson for Israel’s Population and Immigration Authority, revealed that the country currently has 38,000 migrants believed to have entered illegally, and out of this number, 1,420 are being held in detention facilities.

The report stated that many of the migrants, especially from Eritrea and Sudan, say they are in the country to seek asylum, after fleeing persecution and conflict.

However, the Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, believes that if unchecked, the influx of African migrants could threaten Israel’s Jewish character.
