This presents the second volume of administrative decisions under the immigration and nationality laws of the United States These decisions were selected from those rendered during the period immediately succeeding that covered in the first volume, up to about August 1947. These decisions are arranged in chronological order, according to the date of the first decision reported herein on a given case. They are cited preferably as 2, I. & N. Dec. — (supplying the page number on which the decision begins), just as those in the first volume are cited 1, I. & N. Dec.
As heretofore, proper names of individual subjects of these decisions have been reduced to initials throughout the printed record to help maintain the confidential nature of these administrative decisions. Thus, it was considered helpful to provide two tables of these reported cases. One is arranged according to the alphabetical order of names; the other according to a numerical sequence of file numbers.
The index featured by this volume replaces the index-digest form used in the first volume. It covers the case material of both the first and the present volumes If feasible, succeeding volumes will continue a cumulative index for easy reference.
Attention has been invited to previous decisions which have been variously affected by later administrative or court decision. This material appears under a “notice" thereof, directly after the tables of cases reported in this volume. In this way, the "currency" of some of the previously reported administrative decisions has been indicated, except insofar as statutory and regulatory changes may have introduced differences.
An appendix has been affixed, before the index material, which tabulates under convenient headings, matters of reference in the reported cases in this volume. This type of material appeared in the forepart of the first volume, as to matters therein.
To offset inescapable delays in publication in volume form of selected decisions rendered after August 1947, "interim decisions” are distributed to our main field offices for public convenience in the perusal thereof. From these "interim decisions" will be culled the material for succeeding volumes. In this way, this decision-material is made available to the public in advance of publication. Publication in volume form will ensue as soon as it becomes possible to do so.
Throughout, the effort has been made and will continue to be made, to keep the public currently informed as to administrative decisions of this kind, not only in accordance with the letter but in the spirit of the Administrative Procedure Act of 1946.
