CHOCH v. BARR (2019)

United States Court of Appeals, Eighth Circuit.

Simon CHOCH Petitioner v. William P. BARR, Attorney General of the United States Respondent

No. 18-3609

Decided: October 11, 2019

Before BENTON, KELLY, and ERICKSON, Circuit Judges. Simon Choch, Pro Se Peter B. Berg, U.S. Immigration & Naturalization Service, Bloomington, MN, Robbin Kinmonth Blaya, Lindsay Dunn, Carl H. McIntyre, U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Division, Office of Immigration Litigation, Washington, DC, for Respondent


Simon Choch petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals upholding an immigration judge’s order finding him removable for having committed an aggravated felony; and denying him cancellation of removal, asylum, withholding of removal, and deferral of removal under the Convention Against Torture. Having jurisdiction under 8 U.S.C. § 1252(a)(2)(C) and (D) to review constitutional claims or questions of law, including whether a conviction qualifies as an aggravated felony, and after careful consideration of the petition, this court finds no basis for reversal.

The petition is denied. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
