Attorney General Brownell Announces New Immigration Policy

Download PDF for this date

Attorney General Herbert Brownell announced today at mass naturalization ceremonies here the new pre-inspection policy under the immigration laws.

The new procedures, which call for inspection of aliens at their point of origin and reject the ineligibles there, will serve a two-fold purpose, according to Mr. Brownell: First, inadmissibility of any alien will be determined before arrival, and often before departure from abroad, materially reducing the hardship which comes with exclusion at a port of entry.. Second, the alien in possession of proper documents will be admitted with virtually no delay at the port of entry by the immigration authorities.
