##### Abstract
[an error occurred while processing this directive]

We show that there are Haken 3–manifolds whose fundamental groups do not satisfy the engulfing property. In particular one can construct a ${\pi }_{1}$–injective immersion of a surface into a graph manifold which does not factor through any proper finite cover of the 3–manifold.
