Israel is deporting kids – now

I have to hand it to the immigration police, Interior Minister Eli Yishai and the government – they’re clever. I honestly never believed they would deport hundreds of children of foreign workers who are here illegally – not because they didn’t want to, but because there would be too much of an international Jewish outcry, like there was last summer when the government okayed the plan. Certainly not after a documentary about foreign children in South Tel Aviv, “Strangers No More,” just won an Oscar.
