130.3 Development of facts relating to penalties incurred by transportation company.

character, and extent of the physical defect which it is certified may affect the ability of the alien to earn a living, boards of special inquiry shall call such examiner as a witness and interrogate him fully as to the particular nature, character, and extent of the affliction certified. Such testimony shall be made a part of the record.* (Secs. 16, 26, 27, 43 Stat. 163, 166, 167; 8 U. S. C. 216, 145, 146)

S. C. 136 (o), 153)

130.6 Excluded alien; informed of rights.

An excluded alien shall be informed that the return voyage is at the expense of the transportation company which brought him; that such transportation company must return him in the same class in which he came. The fact that he has been so informed shall be entered in the minutes.* (Secs. 16, 17, 18, 39 Stat. 885, 887; 8 U.S. C. 152, 153, 154)

130.7 Alien excluded for removable cause; reopening of case. Where an alien is excluded merely because of nonpossession of a visa, or for any cause which can readily be removed or overcome, the case may be reopened within a period of thirty days from the date of original exclusion. Where the statistical month ends prior to final disposition, the case for statistical purposes will be carried into the succeeding statistical month.* (Sec. 17, 39 Stat. 887; 8 U.S. C. 153)

130.8 Alien certified for mental condition; right of medical appeal. An alien certified for insanity or mental defect shall be advised of his right to appeal to a board of medical officers of the United States Public Health Service, and that he may introduce before such board one expert medical witness at his own cost and expense. The exact language employed in so informing the alien of his rights, together with a full and accurate transcript of his reply, shall be inserted in the record and made a part thereof. In the event the alien desires to appeal to such medical board the officer in charge at the port, in conformity with regulations prescribed by the United States Public Health Service, shall make such arrangements with the office of the Surgeon General as may be necessary for the convening of such medical board without the case being first reported to the Central Office.* (Sec. 16, 89 Stat. 885; 8 U. S. C. 152)
