Jerusalem - Israel deported a Filipino guest worker and her Israel-born son, now 12.

Rosemarie and Rohan Perez were sent out Monday evening a week after being arrested in a raid on their Tel Aviv apartment conducted by the Population and Immigration Authority. Rohan was attending a local school, Ynet reported.

The Israeli government this summer intends to deport approximately 50 children of foreign workers who have overstayed their work visas and are in the country illegally, according to The Times of Israel.

While a number of other arrests have been made, including one of a woman and her special needs son, this is the first deportation to be carried out as part of the current operation.

“They just tossed us around,” Ynet quoted Rohan as saying. “They took us to the airport with nothing. We asked to make a phone call, but they wouldn’t let us. I told them that I wanted to stay here and that we have done nothing wrong.”

The government had previously made moves to deport locally born children of foreign workers, but the Interior Ministry made a “humanitarian decision” in 2010 to refrain from expelling children attending school here. Some of those born in Israel only speak Hebrew.

An Immigration Authority spokeswoman, Sabine Hadad, said an Israeli court had allowed the expulsion of the Perezes on Sunday, the French news agency AFP reported.

“She has been here illegally for 10 years,” Hadad said.
Some 25,000 to 30,000 Filipino workers live in Israel, many of whom work as aides to the elderly.

So Israel has the same problems that the US: bleeding heart liberals thinking illegal immigration and taking advantage of the country is just fine, so long as the criminals vote for the left!

Other than trying to tug at western style fake moral pity, why should they be allowed to stay? They are not citizens and their legal rights expired a long time prior. I assume that if they were working it was off the books with no taxes to the Israeli government.
By the way, some of these Filipinis are not as sweet as they sound, they shop around for rich clients and get the elderly to promise money from the will. A relative of mine experienced a hilarious shakedown attempt till he reminded them that if there was no accusation of wrongdoing there can't be a shakedown.
I am also appalled by the suspicious use of Jewish religion in the photo. I hope they are not claiming to be Jewish and lighting backwards.

As I’ve been saying all along! Any attempt to differentiate between the alt-right yutz and the alt-Zionist is a poor attempt at humor. Straight for zi bunker kamraden!

I agree, 100%; incidentally, during the 1970's, Israel took in thousands of Vietnamese refugees, who became citizens.

there was once a time when Jews valued compassion .... we have a mitzvah to be compassionate to the 'immigrant' because we were 'immigrants' in Egypt .... this doesn't necessarily mean a convert ..... this family was an asset to Israel and I am sure the people the mom worked for could attest to that ...... Israel is taking American's lead ..... being a bully is all the rave ..... how to get points with Trump .....
