Peron Grants Amnesty to Jewish Immigrants Who Entered Argentina Illegally

Amnesty for Jewish immigrants who entered the country illegally after April 1 was granted here by President Peron, following joint intervention by the pro-Peron Jewish group, Organizacion Israelita Argentina, and the “Sociedad de Protsecion a los Immigrates Israelites.” Amnesty for immigrants who entered the country illegally before April 1 was extended by the Argentine President some time ago.

Informing the Jewish organizations of extension of the amnesty, the Department of Migration emphasized, however, that all illegal immigrants entering the country after this week will be arrested and may be deported from the country. At the same time, the immigration authorities notified the Jewish organizations that quota visas will be issued for Jewish immigrants. The O.I.A. was asked to warn Jewish immigrants not to risk arrest by entering the country without a visa after today.
