Declaring that the Government of the United States intends cutting the Polish immigration quota because the majority of immigrants coming from Poland are Jews, the “Kurjer Polski” asserts the Polish authorities propose to reduce the number of visas to Jews to conform with the percentage they constitute in Poland’s whole population.

The Kurjer points out that last year out of a total of 90,000 who emigrated to America from Poland there were 70,000 Jews admitted to the United States, and only 20,000 Christians.

The Government is urged by this newspaper to proceed with the elaboration of a plan for the limiting of Jewish emigrants “before America closes its door to all Polish emigrants”.
