Huge majority of Israelis back jail terms for those who employ illegals

A new poll shows that a huge majority of Israelis favor jailing those who employ illegal immigrants.
Telephone poll of a representative sample of 500 Hebrew speaking adult Israeli Jews carried out by New Wave for Yisrael Hayom on 12 June and published on 15 June 2012.

Are you for or against a punishment of 5 years prison for employers of infiltrators?
For 56.6% Against 24.6%$ Don't know 18.8%
I'm not surprised. As long as the flow of illegals was relatively small, it was manageable (and people felt sorry for them when they were shot by the Egyptians. But the feeling here is that illegal immigration has gone totally out of control. And given that this country is a fraction of the size of Arizona or Texas, just about everyone feels it.
