52/50

Illegal immigration motivated by financial benefits is recognized as a worldwide problem that many countries are attempting to eradicate.
On August 18th, 2002, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon announced Israel’s decision to fight illegal immigration by activating a strict anti-immigration policy. To date, 121,995 people have been deported and another 192,412 suspects reviewed. The new anti-immigration sector is decked with a massive annual budget of about 170 million Israeli Shekels, 473 officers and around 90 vehicles referred to by the persecuted foreigners as “Fifty Two Fifty.” With the help of a professional crew of volunteers, armed with cameras, we latched on to the “Fifty Two Fifty” cars to  film these officers in action. The film documents the volunteer recruitment process, the officers’ fears, and follows the illegal immigrants from the streets to their arrest and finally to their deportation.
