A family of Filipino foreign workers will be deported from Israel on July 23rd, the Petach Tikvah District Court ruled on Monday, and will be released from detention until the day of their deportation.

The court’s decision followed a campaign by protesters who petitioned the court following the arrest of six and a half year old AJ and her parents on Sunday morning, the first day of her summer break.  The petition, submitted by the NGO “Israeli Children”, called on immigration authorities to set the family free from the detention facility at Ben-Gurion International Airport, and to allow them time to prepare for deportation. AJ herself had already been released Sunday night following an appeal to the court, but Monday’s court decision means both of her parents will be set free until their deportation date.
