In 2009, for the first time in a decade, the number of immigrants to Israel rose from the previous year.  Approximately 16,200 immigrants arrived in Israel from around the world over the last year, marking a 17% percent rise from 2008 when 13,860 immigrants made Aliyah, according the Jewish Agency and Israel’s Ministry of Immigration Absorption.

Noteworthy immigration includes Aliyah from countries with very small Jewish communities. In 2009, the figures included: 3 from Japan, 3 from China, 2 from Honduras, and one from each of the following countries – Martinique, Madagascar, Kenya and Taiwan. 4 others preferred Israel to Hong Kong, and a similar number came from the Island of Mauritius.

December 24th, 2009 Elijah V. Fayerman No comments 1,440 views

A Korea-born pastor who owns and operates a religious school in Fullerton, Calif., is expected to make his initial appearance in federal court Wednesday to answer to charges that he used the school as a front for an elaborate student visa fraud scheme, going so far as to hand out phony diplomas and stage graduation ceremonies.

Samuel Chai Cho Oh, 65, owner of California Union University (CUU), surrendered to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents Tuesday morning. Oh, who also serves as pastor of the Union Church housed on the CUU campus, is accused in a criminal complaint of conspiracy to commit visa fraud.
