No. 35.

350 U.S. 179 (1956)

76 S.Ct. 281

100 L.Ed. 185


Supreme Court of United States.

Decided January 16, 1956.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Marvin E. Frankel argued the cause for the United States in No. 35 and for respondent in No. 47. With him on the briefs were Solicitor General Sobeloff, Assistant Attorney General Olney, Beatrice Rosenberg and Carl H. Imlay.

Jacob Kossman argued the cause and filed a brief for respondent in No. 35.

George Morris Fay argued the cause for petitioners in No. 47. With him on a brief was John P. Burke. Anthony S. Falcone also filed a brief for petitioners in No. 47.

MR. JUSTICE FRANKFURTER delivered the opinion of the Court.

Because of conflicting constructions by the Courts of Appeals for the Second and Third Circuits of § 235 (a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, 66 Stat. 163, 198, we brought these cases here. 349 U.S. 904; 349 U.S. 927. They were heard in sequence, and, since minor differences in their facts are irrelevant to the problems now before us, they may be disposed of in one opinion.
