While stressing the “importance to establish accountability,” Spindler warned Israel against taking broad measures against the Eritreans. “Any decision impacting all Eritrean asylum-seekers…would contravene international law,” he told reporters. Earlier in the day, MK Simcha Rothman of the Religious Zionist Party proposed a new law that would make it easier for the government to deport illegal immigrants who had overstayed their visas.
