    (ANSAmed) - TEL AVIV, AUGUST 12 - The Supreme Court in Jerusalem has ruled against an appeal last night presented by a Filipino woman, a caregiver whose 13-year-old son was born in Israel and only speaks Hebrew, reports said Monday. Rosemary Peres and her son Rohan, according to media reports, were accompanied to board a plane but the woman, who has been living and working in Israel for the past two decades, opposed physical resistance. Mother and son were subsequently taken to a police station near the airport. Their expulsion should now be imminent, according to reports.

    The story has raised the public opinion's interest since dozens of Filipino caregivers who gave birth and raised their children in Israel have received expulsion orders due to what authorities said were infringements of their job contracts. A number of NGOs have mobilized for the caregivers, many of whom work with elderly people, and have organized a protest in Tel Aviv. (ANSAmed)
