Israel Seeks to Deport Illegal Romanian Resident, Former IDF Reservist

Triean Bodea is divorced with three Israeli children; his ex-wife says he's a good father and doesn't understand how the state could do this.

Triean Bodea, 41, came to Israel from Romania in 1991 as a migrant worker. He met an Israeli woman, married her and they had three children. Even though he is not an Israeli citizen, Bodea was drafted into reserve duty in the Israel Defense Forces in 2000 − but now the government is trying to deport him.
