Yes, I think that would have been a valid reason.  Depends if Canada had similar deportation rules, and when it happened.

80 is not particularly elderly, so unless you believe she is in poor health more likely to be alive. 

Has she lived all her life in Scotland, or elsewhere?  Would she have retired abroad? etc etc.

'Do' - Port of Embarkation (New York), Port Landed (Soton), Class of Travel (3rd)

Putting - gets rid of about half of them, which still leaves an awful lot of false hits.

I did wonder if he (brother-in-law) had gone voluntarily, but without records who can tell.

Found : widow and child detained, at back of all entries, LPC and some squiggles. But only for about 2 days then released.

Well done for that suggestion.

Thanks all.

Erato : I think, years ago, I got as far as 'log in through school/institution' and stopped, not realising there was an alternate access option.

Hillhurst : disagree, that was why I hope for examples of what actually happened to some who were deported. Looking for differences between law and reality.  Arrived in November 1919, left in August 1920, he was with American wife in January.  He had originally arrived in 1906, though still regarded as alien on registration card in 1917 in Illinois.

That is how I often feel. 
Just what I was interested in.
 
Right, off to work on what you have provided.

Hoping still for stories passed down e.g. great grandmother got thrown out because xxx and when I investigated reason given was yyy.

Yes, they were all deported together. 
John Eacher probably originally arrived in Quebec in 1906.  Not completely tracked him. 
Her first husband has a commonwealth war grave.

As I put, I can speculate for reasons for being deported in the knowledge that they were not living together on 1920 census, and regardless of who she claims as the father of John, but I wanted examples of reasons for deportations that others have found - in the absence of any documents or newspaper reports.

The widow, plus Irish-born child, plus brother-in-law travelled out together in 1919, destination Pittsburgh, which is where he had been living before.  Stated as brother-in-law on passenger list.

They come back together in 1920, I will attach a clip of travel where it says deported.

With the surname Eacher, most of the newspaper hits are for Teacher.

Thank-you.

The brother-in-law was in Pittsburgh in 1920, living with his American wife's brother.

I have no luck searching American newspapers - can you recommend a free site?
