Aliens from Mexico...

Item # 217621

July 10, 1827

NATIONAL JOURNAL, Washington, July 10, 1827  On the front page under a woodcut of an eagle and shield is a State Department notice stating in part: "Whereas, in the regulations published in the city of Mexico, by order of the Government, no foreigner can pass the frontier, or land in any ports of the Republic, or travel thence into the interior, without a regular passport, issued or countersigned by... one of the agents of Mexico..." and a few other stringent requirements, signed in type: J. R. Poinsett. Interesting considering the current debate about immigration.
Stray writing above the masthead, & some above the woodcut.
