Immigration and Naturalization Service v. Errico

No. 54

Argued October 20, 1966

Decided December 12, 1966*

385 U.S. 214


Section 241(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which exempts from deportation an alien who obtained a visa and entry to the United States by fraud and misrepresentation where the alien is the spouse, parent, or child of an American citizen or of an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence, and was "otherwise admissible at the time of entry," is construed, in the light of its humanitarian purpose of preventing the breaking up of families, to save from deportation such aliens who misrepresented their status for the purpose of evading quota restrictions. Pp. 385 U. S. 217-225.

No. 54, 349 F.2d 541 affirmed; No. 91, 350 F.2d 279 reversed.
