Aliyah Minister Landver states there is no division in her ministry for encouraging American aliyah, adding that it is not her job, and she will not start such a division. Lieberman’s pro-American aliyah voters might think twice before voting Yisrael Beitenu in the next elections.

The Ministry of Immigrants and Absorption has specialized departments to encourage immigration from different countries.

I want to ask:

If not –

2. Why?

3. Will such a department be established and when?

Response to Query 1097 “U.S. Immigration”

In the query there were three questions, which rely on the assumption that the Ministry of Immigrant Absorption has specialized departments to encourage immigration from different countries.

1. The Ministry of Immigrants and Absorption has no division to encourage immigration from the United States.

The Ministry of Immigrants and Absorption oversees the absorption of immigrants from all over the world.

The Ministry of Immigrants and Absorption deals with the treatment and encouragement of special populations, such as those from Ethiopia, Caucasus and Bukhara, in specialized designated departments.

2. Regarding the United States and Britain, the Ministry relies on the assistance of private system operator organizations that encourage immigration.

In addition, the Nefesh B’Nefesh organization is working in these areas and receives support in accordance with their ability to meet the necessary criteria.

3. No department will be established to encourage immigration from the United States, as the ministry firmly deals with the absorption of immigrants.
