Mexican police raided a local immigration facility near the border with Guatemala on Friday and arrested 26 Lev Tahor members.

According to Israel’s Foreign Ministry who made the announcement on Motzei Shabbos, the raid, which took place in the city of Tapachula, was carried out by dozens of police officers and welfare officials. Two of the cult members, a Canadian citizen, and an Israeli citizen were arrested for alleged human trafficking and sexual offenses punishable by about 20 years in prison.

Helping the police were Yisrael Amir, and several of his relatives, who escaped the cult several years ago, and participated in order to identify his four-year-old son. His son was found and transferred to his custody and the two flew to Israel together. Amir had been working on a plan to bring his son to Israel since he escaped the cult three years ago. He reportedly worked with former Mossad agents to formulate a plan to save his son amid reports of the children in the cult being abused and neglected.

As reported, five cult members from the raid are expected to be deported for staying in the country illegally and the rest of the cult members at the compound were transferred to the Mexican Welfare Ministry.
