Illegally Resident Arabs in Palestine to Be Deported

A list of the names of the 300 Arabs from Transjordania who entered Palestine illegally having been completed, they will be tried shortly and probably deported, it is learned here today. The list was compiled by the police following Jewish representations made to the authorities that while Jewish immigration was prohibited Arab migration from Transjordania was unchecked.

Most of the illegally resident Arabs are employed by the Shell Oil Co., the Nesher Cement Co., and similar enterprises.
