'Why you wouldn't like to be caught without ID in Tel-Aviv' [JourneymanTV]

This guerrilla-style documentary follows the notorious Israeli 5250 squad in action as they target foreign workers for deportation.

Israel has found an original solution to illegal immigration: a massive force of anti-immigration police who patrol the streets rounding up foreigners. Every immigrant in Israel knows '5250', the number on the force's license plates. Since the Deportation Police Force was founded more than 130,000 people have been deported at a rate of 136 per night. Rumour has it that the Deportation Police arrest and assault any migrant they find, whether legal or illegal. Thirty Israeli film students turned on their cameras and followed the Deportation Police on their rounds. This is what they saw.
