The U.S. Consulate in Tel Aviv is warning young Israelis not to work illegally in the United States, using a video on YouTube.

In the 12-minute video, titled “The Price is Too High: Trying to Work Illegally in the United States,” Israeli citizens captured by U.S. authorities talk frankly about being captured, questioned and deported from the United States.

Sections on the video include: “How they lie to you,” and “How they coach you to lie.”

Upon completing their army service, many young Israelis enter the United States on tourist visas and then work illegally in kiosks in local malls. They accept the work because they make a lot of money in a short amount of time.

The U.S. Consulate is currently refusing to grant entry visas to recently discharged IDF soldiers, Ynet reported. Israelis caught working illegally in the United States are blacklisted and not allowed to enter the country again.
