The Passenger Cases case brief summary

The Passenger Cases case brief summary 
 48 U.S. 283 (1849) 

Facts:The Supreme Court struck down legislation in New York and Massachusetts that required the operators of ships to pay landing fees for their passengers in order to fund the support of paupers. 

The Court, however, did not make any substantial move toward abolishing state regulation of immigration. Even as it struck down the particular means employed by the two states, it allowed the states to continue regulation of immigration through bonds and other instruments.
