U.S. Jewish Tourists Report Discrimination in Mexico; Anti-alien Bill Speeded

DIFFICULTIES PLACED IN THE WAY OF AMERICAN JEWISH TOURISTS BY SOME SUBORDINATE MEXICAN GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS HAVE BEEN ADDED TO THE ANTI-SEMITIC DRIVE AGAINST FOREIGNERS, IT IS INDICATED BY COMPLAINTS RECEIVED BY THE JEWISH CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND DER WEG, YIDDISH DAILY.

(THE ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORTS THAT A BILL DRAFTED BY LABOR DEPUTY ISMAEL C. FALCON, WHICH WOULD BAR ALIENS FROM MANY FIELDS OF ACTIVITY, THURSDAY NIGHT RECEIVED THE UNANIMOUS APPROVAL OF THE CHAMBER’S COMMITTEE ON LABOR DEFENSE. MEMBERS OF THE GOVERNMENT MAJORITY BLOC ALSO VOTED IN CAUCUS TO SUPPORT THE MEASURE, ASSURING ITS APPROVAL.)

ONE JEWISH TOURIST FROM THE UNITED STATES REPORTED THAT AN IMMIGRATION OFFICIAL TOLD HIM, “WE ALREADY HAVE ENOUGH JEWS IN MEXICO AND WE NEED NO MORE.” ANOTHER WAS ASKED FOR A $300 GUARANTEE, WHICH IS ILLEGAL. THE COMMERCE CHAMBER SUBMITTED A MEMORANDUM ON THE DISCRIMINATION TO THE INTERIOR MINISTRY.

A BILL TO DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN “DESIRABLE” AND “UNDESIRABLE” RACES IN DETERMINING IMMIGRATION QUOTAS HAS BEEN INTRODUCED IN THE SENATE AT THE BEHEST OF THE NATIONALIST UNION OF THE UNITED STATES OF MEXICO.
