Thread: Interesting Case Law

  1. #1
    http://www.ca2.uscourts.gov/de.../06-0202-ag_opn2.pdf

    In this one above, the 2nd circuit upholds Rotimi v. Holder 8/14/2009). On the bench, "lawfully resided continuously". Most interesting outcome, as the court defers with BIA and make it a case, that lawfully resided really means having been granted status and has nothing to do with living "crime free". That tells me, that EWI immigrants wouldn't be able to apply for Cancellation of Removal, because they then never lived "lawfully".

    Most interesting! Is this one of the Scotch Tape and Spit scenarios?

    No, I wasn't refering to anything about me. I picked that up at a news letter somewhere and found it interesting so I thought I post it.

    But isn't it true, if you read it, the BIA and in this case the 2nd circuit court spoke against many of their own prior rulings. It doesn't make any sense. I think immigrations gone crazy!

    Immigration law is totally insane. Time to reform and simplify.

    Koller, here's a case that might interest you...

    Youssef Megahed Speaks Out from Prison; Florida Student Was Acquitted in Jury Trial But Now Faces Deportation on Same Charges

    Basically this LPR Egyptian student in South FL was tried and found not guilty of terrorist-related charges by a jury in a criminal court then 3 days later was re-arrested on the same charges under immigration law. Now he faces a single Immigration Judge who will decide if he stays or has to leave. Ironically his family will all become USCs soon! Seems like a double jeopardy case. Just goes to show how different Immigration law is against Criminal law in this country. Houston?
