G.R. No. L-21289 October 4, 1971.
Lau Yuen Yeung, a Chinese residing at Kowloon, Hongkong applied for a passport visa to enter the Philippines as a non-immigrant to take a pleasure trip and visit his great grand uncle. Originally, she was granted to stay for a month, but due to several extensions she was supposed to leave a year after. However, before her visa was to expire, she married Edilberto Lim (petitioner) , an alleged Filipino citizen. She claims herself to be lawfully naturalized upon her marriage.
Because of the contemplated action of respondent to confiscate her bond and order her arrest and immediate deportation, after the expiration of her authorized stay, she brought this action for injunction with preliminary injunction.
