Weiland v. Lynch, 14-3631

In an immigration action, appealing a removal order based on petitioner's conviction for possession of child pornography in violation of New York Penal Law section 263.11, the petition is denied where Torres v. Lynch, 136 S. Ct. 1619 (2016) established that a violation of state criminal law may constitute an aggravated felony under the Immigration and Nationality Act even if it lacks a federal jurisdictional element.
