U.S. Supreme Court

Mulcahey v. Catalanotte, 353 U.S. 692 (1957)

Mulcahey v. Catalanotte

No. 435

Argued March 27, 1957

Decided June 3, 1957

353 U.S. 692


An alien who entered the United States in 1920 for permanent residence was convicted in 1925 of a federal offense relating to illicit traffic in narcotics. At that time, there was no statute making that offense a ground for deportation. After enactment of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, he was ordered deported under §§ 241(a)(11) and (d) thereof, which provide for the deportation of any alien who "at any time" has been convicted of violating any law relating to illicit traffic in narcotics. He challenged the validity of this order in a habeas corpus proceeding.

Held: the order of deportation is sustained. Lehmann v. United States ex rel. Carson, ante, p. 353 U. S. 685. Pp. 353 U. S. 692-694.

236 F.2d 955 reversed.
