Palestine Shut Topolish Group

Penniless and without prospect of returning home to Poland, twenty-three Polish-Jewish immigrants were turned back at the Palestine frontier today on the ground that their visas were “imperfect.”

They were put on a train and sent to Cairo, Egypt. The entire group had spent all money in its possession in the hope of being allowed to settle in Palestine.

The strict control which Palestine officials are now exercising over all immigration has resulted in the arrest and detention of hundreds of Jewish immigrants attempting to enter Palestine.
