The Knesset Plenum approved the second and third reading of the Entrance to Israel Bill (amendment No. 25), 2014.
The Bill will extend the order on employing, housing and transporting illegal aliens and levies criminal sanctions on transgressors. The ordinance includes sections that forbid taxi drivers working along the ”seam” from transporting illegal aliens. They must check the ID of the passenger in order to make sure that they are not an illegal immigrant. The law places the burden of proof on the driver to prove that they didn`t know the passenger was an illegal immigrant.
