U.S. Supreme Court

Chin Fong v. Backus, 241 U.S. 1 (1916)

Chin Fong v. Backus

No. 664

Argued April 5, 6, 1916

Decided April 17, 1916

241 U.S. 1


Where the right of a person of Chinese descent to enter this country depends, as in this case, upon the statutes regulating Chinese immigration, and not upon the construction of provisions of treaties relating thereto, a direct appeal will not lie to this Court under § 238, Jud.Code, from a judgment dismissing a petition for habeas corpus of a Chinese person detained for deportation.

The status of a Chinese merchant, as defined by the treaty with China of 1880, is that acquired in China, and not in this country.

The facts, which involve the jurisdiction of this Court of appeals from the district court under § 238, Judicial Code, are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
