Dozens of members of a Hebrew Israelite community, also known as the Black Hebrews,  have received deportation orders, despite the fact that much of the community have permanent residency status.

The community, which numbers around 3,000 people, is made up of Black Americans whose leaders moved to Israel in the 1960s and believe they are descendants of an ancient Israelite tribe.

 Most live in the southern desert town of Dimona.

KAN's Mark Weiss spoke with Ashriel Moore, spokesperson of the community in Israel.
