Why pay only 'migrants' to leave?

For the third consecutive month, the number of illegal migrants that agreed to leave Israel has more than doubled.
A total of 1,705 African migrants agreed to leave Israel voluntarily in February, Interior Minister Gideon Sa'ar said Thursday.
The number is the largest single monthly total yet, coming after 765 who left in January, 325 in December and 63 in November.
Sa'ar credits the figures to the new anti-infiltration amendment, the opening of the Holot detention facility for African migrants, greater  of enforcement against Israelis hiring illegal migrants, the one-time grant that was increased from $1,500 to $3,500 and a general climate that he says is not rewarding for those migrating to Israel illegally.
He also took issue with the assumption many hold that the number is mainly made up of people who were detained in Holot and agreed to leave so as not to remain in prison. According to Sa'ar, of the 1,705, only 64, or 3.7% were in Holot or in Saharonim prison, the rest were living in Israeli cities.
Hmmm. I wonder how many 'Palestinians' would leave for $3,500 each. Just sayin'.... (By the way, that is not entirely an idle observation. Rabbi Meir Kahane suggested paying 'Palestinians' to leave 30 years ago).

At $20k a head this would be a deal!

Gandi (Ze'evi) ran on a platform of voluntary transfer as well before he was murdered by PFLP goons during the terror war
