Israel scraps African migrant deportation plan
Israel has cancelled plans to deport migrants en masse to Africa after reaching a deal with the United Nations refugee agency.
More than 16,000 asylum seekers will instead be resettled in Western countries, including Canada, Italy and Germany, according to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
About 16,000 others will be given residency in Israel, he said.
When did this become our problem?
Via Faith Goldy – Seems Canada reached a deal back in February
Israel agrees to halt deportations of Canada-bound asylum-seekers
Update: Netanyahu suspends new deal on African migrants hours after announcing it
Update on the Update – It appears that none of the “Western Countries” cited by Netanyahu had agreed to take in the Sudanese and Eritrean “refugees” and have said so in no uncertain terms, only Canada is acting as a sucker nation based on an earlier deal worked out by ex-liberal MP Irwin Cotler, Israel, the UNHCR and the Trudeau regime.
