Embassy PSA to Young Israelis: Don't Risk Illegal Work in the US

Replete with testimonies from witnesses with digitally altered appearances and electronically disguised voices, it’s a cross between a true crime show and Scared Straight. No, it’s not the latest reality TV show out of Hollywood. It’s a video called “The Price is Too High” made by the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv to warn young Israelis against trying to work illegally in the United States.

In the 12-minute film, a U.S. embassy employee is seen and heard admitting that it took a while for the authorities in his country to become aware of the thousands of young Israelis working illegally at kiosks and carts in suburban shopping malls. However, now that the U.S. has gotten wise to the phenomenon, it is cracking down on the companies that scam the young Israelis and busting the Israelis themselves as they try to pass Immigration and Customs at the airport.
