US taxpayer-funded resettlement agency has it nose (again) in Israel’s business

Many American Jewish groups are angry with the Israeli government because it is now taking steps to remove tens of thousands of economic migrants who entered Israel from Africa before it had built its great border wall.

If US private activist groups want to pressure Israel that is their business, however, when one of those groups is paid millions annually from the US Treasury it becomes our business what they do.  Of course it is the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) I’m talking about.

That is the question that the Twin Cities Pioneer Press seeks to answer in a longish article published yesterday.

(Was it ever really out, or were Minnesotans kept in the dark and never asked?)

Employing a technique we have become accustomed to seeing, reporter Bob Shaw uses a family as his ‘poster family’ that seems to be the kind of people America can absorb—hardworking, speak English, grateful—so as to get your sympathy juices flowing.  But otherwise, I think it is was a pretty balanced and generally factual piece.
