There are two principal statutory grounds for deportation of aliens based on criminality. First is the restriction against those who committed crimes before coming to these shores. Second is the ground which provides for the expulsion of the undesirable who was welcome when he first applied for admission to the United States but has subsequently committed proscribed acts. The purpose of this article is to examine the first class named above, and to consider proposed legislation on the subject now before the Congress.
