On the other hand, this looks like a violation of Exodus 23:9:
Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz recently instructed ministry officials to develop a comprehensive plan for deporting 100,000 illegal foreign workers from Israel within a year.

You shall not oppress a stranger, since you yourselves know the feelings of a stranger, for you also were strangers in the land of Egypt.It's also a violation of economics to assume that sending customers away is harmless.
