242, [23] pages, cloth, dj, very good. Stated 1st edition. Arthur Garfield Hays in his introduction: "Read the story, written simply, a story of courage and determination, a woman's story of little people caught in the web." From Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism "The Secret Evidence: Due Process Betrayed" By Sadia Razaq: "Take for example the case of Ellen Knauff, the German wife of a U.S. soldier. When Knauff applied to enter the United States, the Immigration and Naturalization Service held her for three years on Ellis Island on the basis of secret evidence, arguing that her entry would put U.S. national security at risk. Because Knauff never knew the substance of the allegations leveled against her, she had no way of defending herself. Knauff took her case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, who ruled against her on the grounds that immigrants do not have constitutional rights. After two and a half years, Congress gave into public pressure and ordered a public hearing for Knauff. It was at this hearing that Knauff learned for the first time, the evidence being used against her. In the end it was nothing more than an estranged lover of her husband acting out of jealously and spite.". N° de réf. du libraire 19427
