Mexican Brides Needed by Polish Jews for Entry to Mexico

January 6, 1937
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A Mexican bride or possession of capital from 20,000 to 100,000 pesos is the newest qualification required of prospective immigrants to Mexico, it was disclosed here today. The Mexican consulate revealed it has been instructed not to issue visas unless one of the two conditions is met.

The conditions are a new blow to the hopes of Jews who have been planning to emigrate to that country, since for the majority of them they are practically impossible to meet.
