An instance of harshness on the part of immigration authorities is seen in the case of the Jewish orange grower, a resident hare, who brought over from Germany his father, aged seventy-four, accompanied with a sister.

They applied for permission to rrmain permanelitly. The son proved that he possesses twenty dunems of land six years in cultivation, and a poultry and vegetable farm. His busines is productive and free of debt. Father and daughter immigrants have bee ordered to leave the country nevertheless.

Alexander Buch, planist, charged with being in the country without permision, won his case against the immigration authorities before the Magistrates court here. His counsel was Max Seligman formerly of Cardiff, England, who argued that his client committed the offense prior to the enactment of the immigration Ordinance, 1933.
