Sara Netanyahu wrote a personal letter to Interior Minister Eli Yishai Tuesday requesting that he stop the deportation of a four-year-old Filipino girl and daughter of foreign workers, Army Radio reported.

The girl was detained earlier in the morning by municipal supervisors in Tel Aviv.

The girl was born in Israel and was enrolled in a state-run daycare facility but did not meet criteria that would allow her to stay in Israel. According to a cabinet decision made last August, children of foreign workers who did not meet a series of criteria would face deportation.
