840 Illegal Immigrants Await Government Action

Download PDF for this date

The Greek schooner St. Nicola, which steamed boldly into the harbor yesterday flying the blue-white Zionist flag and carrying 697 Jewish illegal immigrants, including 470 men, 190 women and 37 children, was held under arrest in the port today pending instructions from the authorities in Jerusalem.

The 370 illegal immigrants captured off Gaza aboard the steamship Los Parlos on Sunday were interned in the Jewish Agency’s immigrants’ hostel in Haifa and will probably be released in a day or two.
