Congressman Nathan D. Perlman announced he proposed to fight any attempt to deport 14-year old Pauline Fink of 101 Margin Street, a pupil in Public School 47, who was declared mentally normal by experts at Bellevue and Post Graduate Hospitals and by a special Immigration Board sitting in Washington. At a re-examination by a Board sitting at Ellis Island on Wednesday, the girl was declared to be mentally defective for the second time.
Pauline Fink, who is deaf, is one of a large family who in November 1920, arrived here with their mother to join the father, Joseph Fink, already in this country.
