  • Illegal Work in the U.S.: Paying the Price
    Illegal Work in the U.S.: Paying the Price

    Over the past few years, some Israelis wanting to work in the United States have told interviewing officers that they planned to go to the United States only for tourism. This video shows what happens when they are caught having worked illegally, either at the port of entry or at their workplace. What can follow is detention, possibly a court hearing, and then an immediate return to Israel along with a multi-year ban on future travels to the United States. This video features Israelis speaking honestly about their experience. We hope you'll agree with them that the price of breaking U.S. immigration law is too high!
