Too Young To Speak Up
Today on Tablet
Mya Guarnieri continues her journalistic crusade today in Tablet Magazine on behalf of the children of illegal migrant workers, mostly Filipino, who are slowly, systematically being deported from Israel. Ten-year-olds who speak Hebrew and plan to serve in the army are easy sells when you are trying to prevent deportation. By contrast, one-year-olds who are barely sentient actually prove easy targets for the Israeli government’s policy of shipping kids back to wherever their parents (legally) came from, usually in contravention of court rulings.
