Arab-Americans arriving in Israel have been subjected to special procedures designed to ensure that they do not remain, and the United States has complained to Israel about it, U.S. Embassy officials said in Tel Aviv. The officials said the procedures include temporary confiscation of passports and air tickets, shortening of tourist visas and a requirement that the visitors post large sums of money until they leave. Israeli officials said the moves are an attempt to clamp down on illegal aliens and ensure that visitors do not overstay their visas.
