Additional information

This accession consists of personal immigration case files created and maintained at the headquarters of the immigration program. Each file typically contains records of application, approval, entry and supporting documentation such as sponsorship information and correspondence between departmental officials and other interested parties. In some instances, the cases relate to deportation and enforcement activities and therefore contain documents such as transcripts, newspaper clippings and research.
