"Men who defy the law and encour- age others to do so are a menace to society, and should come under the deportation clauses ot the new Im- migration Act, even though they are members of the citizens' league." It cannot be said that Mr. MacLean putg the matter too strongly. There is not a doubt 'that men who defy the law.jand encourage others to do so are a menace to society. Men who would be the last to offend against laws wuipb are placed on the statute book for 'the protection of society are too often inclined to look laxly on the liquor laws.
