U.S. WILL DEPORT EARL BROWDER’S WIFE
Washington, Oct. 31 (UP) –
Attorney General Robert H. Jackson today ordered the deportation of Raisa Berkman Browder, Russian-born wife of Earl R. Browder, Communist candidate for President of the United States.
Immigration Service officials will meet within a few days to determine the effective date of the deportation order.
An application by Mrs. Browder for a suspicion of the deportation order was denied by Mr. Jackson on the grounds that “Mrs. Browder’s evasive testimony regarding her relationship to the Communist Party had created doubt as to her eligibility for leniency.”
