Argentine Government Sets Deadline for Legalization of Status of Visaless Immigrants

Immigrants who entered Argentina illegally up to July 8 of this year when President Juan Peron granted them a pardon must legalize their status by October 1, 1949, the Director of Migration announced today.

The announcement warned that any person failing to register with the Migration Department and obtain the necessary documents is liable to deportation to his country of origin or any other nation which will agree to take him. Thousands of Jewish DP’s who arrived in this country since the end of the war are affected by the ruling.
