Prime Minister Netanyahu and Interior Minister Aryeh Deri took an undercover visit to Southern Tel Aviv to understand what the area is going through. This Thursday there will be a meeting regarding the illegal immigrant problem and the Supreme Court decision that allows them to stay if they don’t agree to leave back to their home country.
