The Likud party announced Thursday that “the opposition will promote the right-wing law regarding putting a stop to Arab immigration to Israel -- Basic Law Bill: Immigration to Israel.”
Religious Zionism chair, lawmaker Bezalel Smotrich, referred to the bill as well, saying that for the first time there is a clear majority to pass it.
“The current laws preventing families’ unification have been based on dilapidated foundations and were perforated over the years like Swiss cheese,” Smotrich said.
“Thousands of Palestinians receive citizenship every year via a clause for exceptions. For the first time in many years, there is a solid right-wing majority in the Knesset that allows enacting a basic immigration law with a large majority that will preserve Jewish majority and Israel’s security.”
