Israel deports Filipina worker, Israeli-born son

Jerusalem: Israel has deported a Filipina migrant worker and her Israeli-born teenage son who has never set foot in the Philippines, after 11th hour legal appeals failed, a rights group and authorities said on Tuesday. She is among some 600 workers from the Southeast Asian nation who activists say could face deportation over a loss of residency status. They include those who breached the conditions of their residency by starting families in the country. The families and supporters say deporting the children to a country which they have never seen and whose languages they do not speak is a cruel policy. (AFP)
