Hundreds turned out at a packed Tel Aviv event on Saturday to show solidarity with the Filipino community in Israel, whose members face the imminent threat of deportation.

The Interior Ministry’s Population and Immigration Authority says it has not changed its policy toward Filipino workers in Israel, but last week it was reported that over the past five months at least 18 mothers and two fathers from the Philippines were facing deportation – along with their children – this summer, after a long period without any deportations.
