February 26, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Despite the fact that they have been summoned by the American Consul at Warsaw to come for their visas which have been approved, many Russian Jewish emigrants, who had filed their applications for visas with the American Consulate at Warsaw and had left for Danzig, where they had been stopping while awaiting action by the Consulate, have now been forbidden entrance into Warsaw by the Polish government.

The Jewish relief organizations have submitted a proposal to the Polish government, providing for a guarantee of $100 for each of these emigrants, to be forfeited if any one of them failed to leave Poland after obtaining their visas.
