This Article will examine the various statutory provisions which have provoked official interest in the sex lives of aliens and the standards by which official judgments have been made. The question of how realistic some of the standards are and the impact of certain statutory provisions upon the overall problem of immigration law enforcement will also be discussed. Although most of the items treated derive from provisions of the present Immigration and Nationality Act, enacted in 1952, the provisions of prior legislation are also germane, for the current law has no statute of limitations and thus reaches back to make deportable any alien who "at the time of entry was within one or more of the classes of aliens excludable by the law existing at the time of such entry."
