    What does held for "LPC Sec 18 QE" mean?

    Fred Voss Newbie

      I am looking at an "Alien Held for Special Inquiry" sheet from the SS Potomac arriving at Ellis Island in 1921.  The immigrant is a 40-year old man with his wife and two children. The cause of the hold is "LPC Sec 18 QE".  I am familiar with LPC meaning "Likely to be a Public Charge," but I have never seen the added information of "Sec 18" or "QE" before.  What do they mean?  Thanks!
