Mrvica v. Esperdy
Argued March 5, 1964
Decided March 30, 1964
376 U.S. 560
An alien seaman, who first entered this country in January 1940, and who left as a seaman on a foreign ship in October, 1942, after a warrant for his deportation was issued, who then returned and has remained here since December, 1942, has not had continuous residence in the United States since his original entry within the meaning of § 29 of the Immigration and Nationality Act. He therefore cannot qualify under that provision for a record of lawful admission into the United States for permanent residence. Pp. 560- 376 U. S. 568.
317 F.2d 220, affirmed.
