217 illegal African migrants leave Israel voluntarily in June

(JNS.org) A total of 217 illegal African migrants left Israel voluntarily during the month of June, while none entered Israel, according to new figures from the country’s Population, Immigration and Border Authority. Last month’s number was almost double the 119 illegal African migrants who left the Jewish state voluntarily in June 2013, according to Israel Hayom.

Since the beginning of 2014, a total of 4,795 infiltrators have left Israel voluntarily, while only 19 have entered illegally. The trend of removing migrants who do not have municipal permits to stay in Israel is ongoing, and the Population, Immigration and Border Authority continues to enforce the regulations.
