This 5-page editorial gives a brief background of the debate around migrants in Israel.

Others argue that Israel has no such obligation and that the strain placed on the country’s resources is far too great to justify. This is introductory article, written by Rebeca Raijman of the University of Haifa, was published in the 2017 edition of Hagira — a scholarly journal about migration put out by the Ruppin Academic Center.
