independence and sov ereignty Hobbs explained to reporters that he believes a government that lacks full deportation powers also lacks independence and sov ereignly This country he said cant exercise full deportation powers as long as Russia or any other coun try wont grant travel orders or passports to deportable aliens Why should the Russians These aliens are too valuable to them here as agents But he said his bill would make it possible to keep such agents from running loose in the country It would empower the attorney i general to toss them in jail until they could be deported Hobbs said he was outraged at criticism of Atty Gen Torn Clark that sprang up when Eisler escaped the country The defect he said was in our laws not in our attorney general Eisler once was described by the house
