U.S. Supreme Court

Pearson v. Williams, 202 U.S. 281 (1906)

Pearson v. Williams

No. 237

Argued April 19-20, 1906

Decided May 14, 1906

202 U.S. 281


The Secretary of Commerce and Labor has a right under § 21 of the Act of March 3, 1903, 32 Stat 1218, to order the deportation of an alien as having come to this country under contract to perform labor, after a second hearing before a board of special inquiry, although there had previously been a special inquiry, pursuant to § 25 of the act at the time of his landing before the same persons, and upon the same questions, and he had been allowed to land.

The board of inquiry under § 25 of the act of 1903 is not a court, but an instrument of the executive power, and its decisions do not constitute res judicata in a technical sense.

The facts are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
