Child of foreign worker deported for first time

 A foreign worker and her six-month-old baby were deported from Israel on Monday marking the first such deportation since the government ruled to expel 400 children illegally staying in Israel last year.
Army Radio reported that the mother who was deported came to Israel as a tourist with a group of Nigerian pilgrims, remained in Israel and gave birth to a baby.
Last week, Interior Minister Eli Yishai announced that deportations of families that do not meet the government-set criteria to stay in Israel would begin soon.
