J.i.a.c. Seeks Humanization of Immigration Regulations

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish Immigrant Aid Society of Canada is sending an influential delegation to Ottawa to intervene with the immigration authorities with regard to certain categories of immigrants and to obtain permission for their entry on humanitarian grounds. The Jewish communal workers have in mind chiefly cases of young engaged couples who have been separated from each other by force of circumstances and who cannot now be united owing to the severe immigration restrictions.

As a result of previous intervention and much effort by the officers of the Canadian J.I.A.C., a Jewish child will now be reunited with his mother, from whom he was separated when still less than a year old, and with his father. The young parents are now on their way to Europe to return with their child.
