WASHINGTON A Democratic congressional delegation urged Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this week to release African asylum seekers being detained in an Israeli prison.
In a letter sent to the premier on Tuesday, 11 Democrats who recently visited the Jewish state said there is no legal justification for deportation of the roughly 280 asylum seekers from African countries, mostly Sudan and Eritrea, being held in the Saharonim prison in southern Israel.
Israels Border Authority jailed the asylum seekers last month, after they refused deportation to a third-party country. The Israeli government has said it intends to to force the migrants to choose between jail and deportation.
We hope that these detainees will be released before the Passover holiday and that durable solutions, including in Israel, can be found, said the letter, which was orchestrated by Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Release them on the beach at Eritrea. Problem solved.
Mind your own business you anti-semites!
A Democrat’s opinion on immigration (in any country) is equal to Al Gore’s opinion on any type of science.
Pray for Benjamin Netanyahu to stay strong!
"Illegal Invaders" are not "asylum seekers." They are an invading army, and they need to be confronted with arms, defeated, imprisoned, and sent running and screaming back to where they launched their invasion.
Put them on a plane with parachutes and boot them out.
Note, that there are third party countries apparently willimg to accept them.
Nancy Pelosi loves border crashers whever they may be. I cant stand the sight or sound of the Harpy. She really reflects the low caliber of San Francisco voters that put her in power.
Why are US Democrats interfering in the governance of an independent, sovereign country?
U.S. House Democrats think they can dictate to foreign nations on how to run their countries? U.S. House Democrats kind of full of themselves, aren’t they?
You liveth by the passive-agressive you get punished by the same
Anti-civilization Democrat filth trying to export lawlessness to the rest of the world.
Interesting to see all those ‘grassroots’ hand-crafted signs.
These are examples of the rabid terrorists who would surely be welcomed into the USA and into the homes and neighborhoods of Nancy Pelosi, Chuckie Schumer, Maxine Waters, Jerry Brown, Libby Scaff, Gavin Newsom, Kamala Harris, Xavier Becerra, Zero, Hitlery, et al. Oh, I got that wrong, the sewer RATs listed want scum like these let loose into your neighborhoods in the USA, don’t ya know!
Ironic - those same Democrats spit on our laws and Constitution and then lecture another sovereign nation about what’s legal and not legal....
Unless theyre screaming at her and shouting her down.
Nancy Pelosi loves border crashers wherever they may be
Release them only to live with these always-idiot DIMocRATs.
