Israel’s government has announced its plans to speed up the deportation of at least 25,000 African immigrants living illegally in the country. Human rights supporters have decried the move and branded the mass expulsion of migrants as “immoral.”

A law also came into effect on Sunday allowing Israeli authorities to detain illegal immigrants for up to three years without trial or deportation.

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement to his ministers urging them to accelerate plans to expel immigrants from South Sudan, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana and Ethiopia.

Human Rights organizations regard the new measure as a violation of the United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees.

Plans are in place to deport over 700 immigrants in the coming days. Netanyahu’s government brands them as “infiltrators” and sees them as a threat to the Jewish demographic in the country.

The Israeli government cannot legally repatriate immigrants from Eritrea, Sudan and Somalia because their lives would be at risk upon their return. They make up around 35,000 of the 60,000 African immigrants currently living in Israel.

"Whoever can be sent away should be sent away from here as quickly as possible," said Netanyahu on Sunday, adding that “it’s clear that we cannot return Sudanese and Eritreans to their countries.”

However, according to the new law any immigrants caught by the Israeli authorities without documents may be subject to the three-year sentence.

Many migrants who take refuge in Israel are fleeing from war or persecution in their countries of origin, but very few are granted official refugee status by the government. Many live on temporary visas and subsist on menial jobs.

African immigrants have become the target of many protests recently in Israeli society. They are blamed for rising crime and violence in the country.

All of the migrant workers caught by the Israeli authorities so far have been transferred to Saharonim detention center which has a capacity of 2,000 spaces. The Interior Ministry predicts the center will reach maximum capacity next month and a currently working on expanding it to accommodate 5,400.

A migrant home was torched on Sunday night, trapping 10 Eritrean migrant workers inside, two of whom were injured. Graffiti was found at the scene that read “leave the neighborhood,” raising suspicions of arson.

Tel Aviv has played host to anti-immigrant demonstrations over the last couple of weeks, thousands taking to the streets demanding the expulsion of all asylum-seekers and immigrants.

Although PM Netanyahu has condemned the protests, there is growing anti-immigrant rhetoric in the Israeli government.

"The infiltrators along with the Palestinians will quickly bring us to the end of the Zionist dream," said Interior Minister Eli Yishai to Maariv newspaper, adding the "Muslims that arrive here do not even believe that this country belongs to us, to the white man."

Aryeh Eldad, a right-wing politician urged Israeli troops to fire upon any “infiltrators” that penetrated its borders, rather than only those suspected to be carrying arms.

Left-wing lawmaker Dov Henin rounded on the new measures the Israeli government is taking, branding them as “immoral.”

Israel is currently building a fence across its border with Egypt in an attempt to stem the flow of African migrants and Islamist militants into the country.

    Well well - it seems the white folks are nothing if not predictable. No matter where in the world they arrive as uninvited guest, they always setup "white supremacy".

    Its good to see Obama's priority is to speak out on gay marriage rights, when those of his own colour are being so openly oppressed.

    This is pure and unadulterated TRUTH. "They" love to go to other people's lands, steal them, and then proceed to set themselves up as Masters of all they survey. They have done this in EVERY SINGLE land they have stolen. I think people are getting hip to how they work.

    Why do you Blacks act like your shit is so clean?

    Jews have helped Blacks for Years, and yet you turn on us like dogs. Do you actually believe your rap stars and actors made it on talent? try pity and charity.

    You idiots talk so much of how people shit on you, you ever take notice about how much you people crap on others?

    Don't bite the hand that feeds you.

      @ Yiddish hammer
      Shame on you, you silly boffoon. Yes a small hand full of Jews stood with blacks against racial persecution, they where brave human beings & I am sure any black person would akmowledge this. However this does not describe the likes of you & racist & genocidal parasites illegally squatting in Israel. As for rap music, Jews may have cashed in on it & generate wealth of it but it's is blacks who created it. And as usual whites can only ever try to imitate the creation of unique music & dance cultures created by blacks, from the blues all the way to techno.

      Claiming that blacks owe Jews something for the generation wealth from their talent is plain stupid, it is Jews who made thier fortunes from exploiting the talent & creativity blacks who us. It also Jews who benefited from the efforts of blacks during the anti-racism movement of the 60's, who's active numbers fat exceeded that of Jews. If not for us the kkk would still killing Jews too.

      Now go drown in a see of jealous tears you clown shoe.

      Yiddish Hammer, your people are thieves and stole this land from it's rightful owners who are the Palestinian peoples. You and other fellow Jews have almost no drop of true Israelite blood, because you are just European converts from Greek, Roman, Khazar, Slav, and German, as well Iberian, yet the Palestinians on the other hand are the true children of Israel. so quit your yapping, but one day Palestine will be free and liberated. It was well known that childless European Jews often stole Palestinian children, and the list goes on. Not only that Israel is one of the most racist states to exist in the world. So quit your yapping. I am Arabian and proud of it a real Semite not a poser like you.

      @ Sarah,
      Too true - they also made enormous wealth of funding (loans) & insuring slave ships & slave cargo too.

      But it’s important to note that this doesn’t absolve the "white race", from its responsibility for creating the demand for slaves, or the brutality & inhumanity with which they treated them. It also doesn’t take away the fact that whites have benefited directly from 400 years of black enslavement, as it is irrefutable fact that plantation wealth funded industrialisation.

      Funny. They're always barging about how they treat women so much better than other races of men. If I was a woman, I'd definitely know which race of man I'd be the most suspicious of...
