Syllabus

A foreign steamship company alleged that, under duress practiced by the immigration authorities, it paid bills rendered by them under color of the Immigration Act for maintenance and medical care furnished by the United States to certain immigrants who, after landing from the company's ships, were temporarily detained before being admitted to the country, and it claimed reimbursement under the Tucker Act upon the ground that the exactions were in violation of its rights as an alien subject, secured by the Constitution, treaties, and laws of the United States. Held that the claim, being founded on alleged torts of federal officials, was not within the Tucker Act or the jurisdiction of the Court of Claims. P. 254 U. S. 155.

53 Ct.Clms. 522 reversed.
