U.S. Supreme Court

INS v. Hibi, 414 U.S. 5 (1973)

United States Immigration & Naturalization Service v. Hibi

No. 72-1652

Decided October 23, 1973

414 U.S. 5

Syllabus

Neither the failure to fully publicize the rights to naturalization afforded by the Nationality Act of 1940 to noncitizens who served in the United States Armed Forces during World War II nor the failure to have an authorized naturalization representative stationed in the Philippine Islands during the time such rights were available estopped the Government from relying on the fact that the deadline for filing naturalization applications such as respondent Filipino's had expired more than 20 years earlier.

Certiorari granted; 475 F.2d 7, reversed.
