A steerage passenger who is in possession of an unexpired permit to reenter the United States issued pursuant to section 10 of the Immigration Act of 1924 (43 Stat. 158; 8 U.S.C. 210), or who is in possession of a laborer's return certificate issued pursuant to section 7 of the Act of September 13, 1888 (25 Stat. 477; 8 U.S.C. 277), relating to Chinese laborers, shall be inspected and examined when practicable at the same time and place as first and second cabin passengers, and if found to be admissible to the United States shall be permitted to enter in the same manner.*1 [3-B-2]

3.7 Inspection postponed; disability of alien. When an alien upon arrival or pending the determination of his right to land is found to be suffering from a disability which in the opinion of the immigraton officials renders it impracticable to proceed with the examination under the immigration law, such alien may be placed in a hospital designated by the proper immigration official, and inspection shall be postponed during such disability.** (Sec. 16, 39 Stat. 885; 8 U.S.C. 152) [3-D-1]

3.8 Inspection postponed; members of family.
