TORONTO - Three members of the runaway Jewish sect Lev Tahor arrested Wednesday in Chatham, Ont., during an immigration probe have been ordered deported.

While their friends were in a Chatham court, fighting to get back some of their children seized over allegations of child abuse, three others appeared at a detention review in Toronto Friday where the Immigration and Refugee Board ordered them held in custody until they can be deported back to Israel.

Canada border security agents raided the village where the ultra religious sect lives Wednesday and arrested six Lev Tahor members without legal status to be here. The three Israeli citizens remaining in custody had all been issued deportation orders in the past and had resolutely ignored them. Border security was just catching up to them now.
