If UTJ opposes deportation of illegal migrants, that's disturbing

According to this report, the haredi party United Torah Judaism is against deporting illegal migrants in Israel, all because their own demands for army draft deferral aren't being met:
A new Jewish Home-sponsored bill overriding the High Court's ruling barring Israel from deporting illegal Sudanese, Somalian, and Eritrean infiltrators is in danger of being scuttled by the haredi United Torah Judaism faction, according to a report Thursday.

According to Kan, UTJ will vote against the bill when it reaches the Ministerial Committee for Legislation on Sunday. Sources from within the party say that it is inconceivable that the coalition will override a High Court ruling regarding illegal infiltrators, while refusing to deal with last year's decision that struck down an amendment to the Draft Law protecting military deferments for yeshiva students.

The override bill would alter Israel’s Basic Law: Human Dignity and Liberty, explicitly empowering the Knesset to overrule the Supreme Court and reenact laws nullified by the Court. However, the bill will only apply to High Court ruling preventing Israel from deporting the tens of thousands of illegal African immigrants.
I'm not sure if it's gone to be voted on yet, but if this is their position, it's offensive, abandoning public safety for the sake of petty issues, and the way they seem to want to scuttle Israel's ability to defend itself better by ensuring Haredis will enlist just like anybody else is also horrific. This is the sad state of affairs ultra-Orthodox parties wallow in.
