Decided January 10, 1967

Petitioner was indicted, tried, and found guilty of violating § 215(b) of the Immigration and Nationality Act for departing from the United States for Cuba, via Mexico, without a valid passport. The parties stipulated that she had no valid passport "specifically endorsed" for travel to Cuba. The Court of Appeals affirmed.

Held: Because there was no allegation or proof that petitioner did not bear a valid passport, the conviction must be reversed. United States v. Laub, ante, p. 385 U. S. 475. Pp. 385 U. S. 491-492.
