Immigrants arriving at the port of Vcra Cruez are experiencing great hardship because the port has been out off from Mexico City through the revolution in Mexico.
The fifteen Jewish families in Vera Cruez are unable to cope with the situation and require funds to aid the arriving immigrants, says a statement by Leon L. Lewis, Secretary of the Bnai Brith here:
“We have today sent forward sufficient funds to relieve the situation for the present and are awaiting further reports,” Mr. Lewis declared. “Future necessities will be effected, of course, by the extent and duration of the present trouble in Mexico. The funds are to be used for those immigrants who have no relatives in the United States. Where arriving immigrants have relatives in America our local representative is cabling them to provide the necessary financial help”
