At the time, Israel was in dire need of able bodied citizens to help defend their small country. Allowing people in who were in need of care would have added to a burden they could barely maintain.

That kind of rationale could have been taken almost word-for-word from something I would have expected to read about Germany in the economic malaise of the 1920s under the Weimar Republic and in the 1930s under National Socialist Party (the Nazis).

The term they would have used was Untermenschen.
