U.S. Supreme Court

White v. Chin Fong, 253 U.S. 90 (1920)

White v. Chin Fong

No. 506

Argued April 22, 1920

Decided May 17, 1920

253 U.S. 90


When a Chinaman seeking to reenter this country on the ground that he was formerly engaged here as a merchant presents due evidence of his right as prescribed by the Act of November 3, 1893, c. 14, 28 Stat. 7, the immigration officials have no authority under the Exclusion Laws to ignore such evidence and exclude him upon the ground that his original entry was in violation of them. P. 253 U. S. 91.

The Exclusion Laws provide a judicial hearing to determine the liability to deportation in such cases, and a mere executive order of exclusion is void. P. 253 U. S. 92.

258 F.8d 9 affirmed. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
