Court rejects petition against deportation of Filipino girl

The Central District Court on Thursday rejected a petition against the deportation of a 4-year-old Filipino girl who did not meet the criteria that allows children of foreign workers to stay in Israel.
Ofek Castillo, born in Israel, had been set to be deported earlier this month, but the Tel Aviv District Court ruled that the case should be re-examined after the Association for Civil Rights in Israel issued the petition along with the organization “Israeli Children."The Population, Immigration and Borders Authority said in response to Thursday's rejection of the petition that Ofek and her mother would be flown out of Israel as soon as possible.
