The Interior Ministry’s decision to reject the application for residency on humanitarian grounds of a 16-year-old autistic girl from the Philippines, who was abandoned in Israel, and to deport her within 30 days, points to a moral decline. Members of the Interministerial Committee for Humanitarian Affairs, including a representative of the Labor, Social Affairs and Social Services Ministry, ruled unanimously that the request “did not reflect any special humanitarian needs that would warrant the award of such status in Israel.”
