In 1954, President Eisenhower gave orders to deport illegal Mexican immigrants. The Immigration and Naturalization Service went door to door in California, Texas, and New Mexico, and caught and deported 130,000. During the same period more than 1,000,000 illegals voluntary went back to Mexico.
In the last few weeks, Israeli authorities have shown similar resolve in deporting Africans, who have been sneaking into the country in ever-increasing numbers. With a boldness that every Western country should imitate, the Israelis have mandated expulsion for the explicit purpose of keeping their country Jewish—even for keeping it white. Once the government made up its mind that the Africans had to go, it went into action very quickly.
Anti-immigrant sentiment had been building for months, with the Israeli paper Haaretz running headlines such as “Unemployed African Refugees Turning Tel Aviv Beaches Into High Crime Spots.” Things came to a head in May, after police arrested four Eritreans and Sudanese who had raped a 19-year-old woman, and Interior Minister Eli Yishai said that African illegals should be rounded up and deported.
Later that month, several members of the Israeli Knesset addressed demonstrators in Tel Aviv who demanded that the Africans be deported. “We must expel the infiltrators,” said Danny Danon of the Likud party. “We should not be afraid to say the words ‘expulsion now’.” Another Likud Knesset member, Miri Regev, called the immigrants a “cancer in our body.” Some of the demonstrators rioted, beating Africans and attacking their shops.
Just a few days later, on June 3, a new immigration law went into effect, permitting detention of illegals for up to three years, and mandating prison sentences of five to 15 years for anyone helping or sheltering illegals. That same day, Interior Minister Yishai complained that “Muslims that arrive here do not even believe that this country belongs to us, to the white man,” adding that he would use “all the tools to expel the foreigners, until not one infiltrator remains.”
On June 8, the Jerusalem District Court ruled that South Sudanese illegals could be sent home, since their country was safe. Interior Minister Yishai said he looked forward to court rulings that would permit expulsion of “all citizens of Eritrea and North Sudan” as well. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated his view that it was a top priority to finish a 150-mile wall along the Egyptian border to keep Africans out.
Two days later, the Israeli cabinet approved new legislation that calls for a five-year jail sentence and stiff fine—the equivalent of a $130,000—for anyone who hires an illegal immigrant. The text of the bill itself calls illegals “a strategic threat to Israeli society.”
On June 11, just three days after the ruling, police started rounding up South Sudanese for deportation. The UN protested, claiming that South Sudan was still too dangerous for repatriation, but Interior Minister Yishai was unmoved. “I prefer that there will be criticism of Israel while the state remains Jewish,” he said. One Tel Aviv resident who watched the roundup noted that “it must be done or tomorrow we will have no country.” Prime Minister Netanyahu agreed, pointing out that immigrants threaten the Jewish character of Israel. The Israeli Operation Wetback was underway.
