President Rivlin expresses support for mass immigrant expulsion

President Reuven Rivlin addressed the issue of the expulsion of African refugees, asserting that while Israel has "a duty to every refugee," "the poor of our people come before the poor of another people."

 

Rivlin expressed his support for the deportation decision during a conference of Israeli representative heads around the world.

 

"I think the government's decisions are of great significance, and they are logical even when sometimes they are opposed to emotion," he said.
