OFW couple, 2 kids arrested in Israel




A Filipino family was the latest casualty in the intensified deportation drive in Israel.

Migrant workers Randy and Sheila were stoic while their daughters Kim, 13, and Maureen, 10, appeared confused as they were picked up from their house in Tel Aviv on Sunday morning, as recorded live by non-profit group United Children of Israel on its Facebook page.

They were seen lugging their suitcases and boarding a white van with two Israeli immigration officers.

Tearful neighbors, including friends of the children, saw the family off.

Israel is deporting Israeli-born children of migrant workers, whose visas were not renewed as they are not allowed to have children in the Jewish state.
