Mexico Reaffirms Evian Pledge

Foreign Affairs Minister Eduardo Hay has written a letter to the Intergovernmental Refugee Committee reaffirming the statement made to the Evian conference by the Mexican representative that Mexico has admitted and will continue to admit persons persecuted because of their race or political beliefs.

Meanwhile, several Jewish refugees have been detained at Vera Cruz. Holding tourist visas, they arrived there on the Dutch steamer Lerdam.
