HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

      Based on subsections (a) pars. (2)-(5), (7), (b), and (d) of
    section 746 of Title 8, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Aliens and Nationality
    (Oct. 14, 1940, ch. 876, Sec. 346(a), pars. (2)-(5), (7), (b), (d),
    54 Stat. 1163, 1164, 1167).
      Section consolidates five similar paragraphs, and the punishment
    provisions of subsection (d) of said section 746 of title 8,
    U.S.C., 1940 ed., Aliens and Nationality, with minor necessary
    changes in translations and phraseology. Numerous references to
    aiding and assisting were omitted as unnecessary as such persons
    are principals under definitive section 2 of this title.
      Words "a certificate of arrival or" were inserted before "any
    certificate" in subsection (b), so as to remove any doubt as to
    scope of section.
