A dragnet organization of police and spies is now tightening around illegal immigrants here, the object of which is to satisfy Arab demands for restriction of the Jewish influx.

It was learned today that the hunt for tourists who are overstaying legal time for foreign visitors became organized into a systematic enterprise. A special police section was established in Tel Aviv. In charge of its operations is the non-Jewish inspector Robinson. He has Jewish constables and spies on his staff.
