Download PDF for this date

An appeal to President Juan Peron to intervene in behalf of nine Jews who have been detained by the immigration authorities for illegal entry into Argentina and who are awaiting deportation was made today by the DAIA, central representative body of Argentine Jews. The message was signed by Dr. Ricardo Dubrovsky, president, and Dr. Benjamin Rinsky, secretary, or the DAIA.

Some of the nine detainees entered Argentina from neighboring countries while the others, possessing visas for various Latin American countries, overstayed their transit periods. The appeal to Peron pointed out that several of the detainees have transit periods. The appeal to Peron pointed out that several of the detainees have been living in Argentina for many years, that all of them are gainfully employed and that some of them hold police identity cards.
