Copy to the People’s Commissariat for Foreign Affairs
” to Comrade Eiduk
I have information about heavy illegal immigration at the present time (of Russians and Americans) through various border points, especially through the Black Sea ports.
The S.E.C. department of industrial immigration reports that up to 200–300 persons are coming in every month, (Among those coming in are profiteers, counter-revolutionaries and people of that sort.)
Please take the most resolute measures to stop such immigration.
Inform Comrade Gorbunov about the measures you take.
V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
Chairman, Council of People’s Commissars
