    It is not just about children and no child will be deported alone. It may be diffficult but Israel has it 's fair share of regular immigration challenges for children , and most survive moving especially when they have family and relatives back home, which in the case of these African migrants, they do have family in their home countries. Asylum seekers do not have a home country they can ever visit without danger and those are the ones we should help with all means. I know some of these Africans , a lot of them have brothers and sisters, aunts, uncles, parents, back home and are in regular touch with them. Life is easier for them here but this is not a reason for them to have the "rights" to stay. The world is full of difficulties. Children are far more sturdy than you think, ask all the immigrant kids who made aliya with their parents.
