    The illegal workers who are now in Israel should be given legal permits to stay here for three more years. Their visas could be issued on the condition they deposit some of their wages in a bank. They would be paid a monthly salary via a "Payment Card" and the bank's stamp would automatically extend their visas. An employee who leaves the country at the end of his legal employment would get the deposited money while the deposits of whoever fails to leave could be confiscated subject to a judicial order. This way most of the workers will willingly leave the country without any need for detentions and deportations. The writer was a Interior Minister under Ariel Sharon from 2003 to 2004
