24 Aliens, Immigration, and CitizenshipAlien who had been previously deported could not be found guilty of violating Immigration and Nationality Act by being “found in” United States where he was stopped at airport and had not yet passed through immigration inspection; mere fact alien was “in” United States did not mean that he was “found in” United States within meaning of Act.
