port through which such aliens are to be deported. As soon as it is determined that such aliens are deportable, the Central Office will obtain travel permits for the aliens passage from the State of origin into the State from which deportation is to be effected, said travel permits being obtained through the office of the Surgeon General, United States Public Health Service, Washington, D. c. Negotiations with appropriate common carriers shall be started by the officer in charge of the district in which such cases arise, immediately upon finding that the victim of the disease is deportable, for the purpose of arranging for the transportation of such aliens in the most economical manner possible, in keeping with the State health laws and the rules of the United States Public Health Service. Other cases of deportable aliens afflicted with leprosy shall be disposed of in accordance with governing circumstances and with the assistance and under the direction of the Central Office.*+ (Secs. 18, 20, 39 Stat. 887, 890; 8 US.C. 154, 156) [20-A-5, 6]

held. Section 21.1 Deportation of witness stayed; conditions, expenses, release. The Department may stay the deportation “of any aliens found to have come in violation of any provision" of the Immigration Act of 1917 (39 Stat. 874) when the testimony of such aliens is necessary on behalf of the United States in the prosecution of offenders against the Immigration Act of 1917 or any other laws of the United States, and the cost of maintenance and a witness fee in the sum of $1 per day may be paid by the Department in each such case, or the alien witness may be released under bond of not less than $500 conditioned for his production when required as a witness or for deportation. Therefore, the alien to be_detained must have come to the United States in violation of the Immigration Act of 1917, and his deportation must have been stayed by the Department, before detention charges and witness fees, or release under bond, can be authorized; and such authorization can be given only in cases in which at least one cause for the proposed deportation of the alien arose prior to entry. Such cases should be reported promptly to the Central Office, with a statement of all facts and circumstances material to decision of the question whether the authorization desired shall be granted. Vouchers for witness fees should be prepared in favor of each witness and submitted at the close of each month or, if detention is for less than one month, at the conclusion of such detention. Maintenance charges will be vouchered in the regular way applicable to such bills. (Sec. 23, 39 Stat. 892, sec. 24, 43 Stat. 162; 8 U.S.C. 102, 222: interprets sec. 18, 39 Stat. 887; 8 U.S.C. 154) [21-A-1, Im. R. & Regs., ed. of Dec. 31. 1936]

21.2 Witnesses; when warrant withheld. Cases in which there exists no cause for deportation arising prior to entry (for example, cases in which aliens have become members of the immoral or criminal classes after landing) are not within the purview of $ 21.1. In such cases, therefore, when it becomes necessary to hold an alien as a witness, arrangements therefor must be made with the appropriate United States attorney. The issuance of warrants of deportation in these classes of cases will be withheld pending the termination of judicial proceedings, so that the witnesses may be bound over and detention expenses and witness fees paid by the Department of Justice. (Sec. 23, 39 Stat. 892, sec. 24, 43 Stat. 162; 8 U.S.C. 102, 222; interprets sec. 18, 39 Stat. 887; 8 U.S.C. 154) [21-B-1, Im. R. & Regs., ed. of Dec. 31, 1936]

When aliens are fed under an exclusive privilege (section 26, Act of February 5, 1917 (39 Stat. 894; 8 U.S.C. 115)), the expenses of maintenance generally shall be deemed the charges at which the privilege holder agrees to furnish them food. At ports where the Immigration and Naturalization Service maintains hospitals, the hospital expenses shall be such as are fixed by the Department, and at other hospitals they shall be as are fixed by the authorities thereof.*+ (Sec. 15, 39 Stat. 885; 8 U.S.C. 151) [22-A-1]
