Warns on Immigration to Argentine Because of Depression

Download PDF for this date

A warning to world Jewry not to emigrate in any large numbers to the Argentine because of economic depression and unemployment there was issued here today by the HICEM, world Jewish immigration organization. The HICEM is composed of the Emig-Direct, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society and the Jewish Colonization Association.

The HICEM’S statement points out that new Jewish immigrants going to the Argentine can expect little or no support from their relatives there. The warning, however, does not mean that all Jewish immigration to the Argentine will cease. About 6,000 Jews have been emigrating to that country each year and in the first six months of this years that figure has been maintained.
