Pursuant to the decision of the Israeli Minister of Interior freezing the acceptance of applications by Palestinian families for family reunion, the number of such pending applications has exceeded 100,000. In 2014, JLAC treated 1319 cases relevant to obtaining family reunification, as well as 58 cases related to application for child registration at the Israeli Ministry of Interior. Children face many considerable problems in the event that one of their parents was not a Jerusalem- ID holder, the most serious among them is refusal by the Israeli Ministry of Interior to register the child, in turn denying him/ her of their due social and economic rights as Jerusalemites (i.e. ability to reside in the city and access education, health care, allowances, etc.).
