UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee, v. Samuel Donald KNIGHT, Defendant-Appellant.

United States Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit.

June 23, 1975.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

J. V. Eskenazi, Federal Public Defender (court-appointed), Thomas Almon, Asst. Federal Public Defender, Miami, Fla., for defendant-appellant.

Robert W. Rust, U. S. Atty., Clemens Hagglund, Asst. U. S. Atty., Miami, Fla., for plaintiff-appellee.

Before BELL, DYER and SIMPSON, Circuit Judges.

BELL, Circuit Judge:

This is an appeal from a conviction under 18 U.S.C.A. § 1546. Finding that this statute encompasses American citizens as well as aliens, we affirm.

The facts of this case are largely undisputed. Appellant Knight was charged in a one-count indictment with personating another when applying for admission to the United States, and attempting to evade the immigration laws by appearing under an assumed name.1
