    There is some middle ground between the protester's racism and calls to evict all the migrants and the people who say Israel should welcome them with open arms provide for them. As illegal immigrants, Israel has every "right" to evict them at her discretion. However, some of them do/did have legitimate claims to refugee asylum. But now, as many have demonstrated, it's relatively safe for them to return to their countries of origin, in the sense that being in those places does not put them in immediate danger. They cause a lot of problems with crime, that is objective. The number of them in Tel Aviv, ~40,000 in a city of 400,000 is equivalent to New York City over the course of a few years absorbing 800,000 migrants. See how well that goes over. Don't be so quick to judge israel and these "rightists"
