Eid v. Thompson, 12-4271

The district court properly found for the government on petitioners' challenge to the Board of Immigration Appeals' (BIA) denial of the Petition for Alien Relative filed by petitioner-wife on behalf of her non-citizen husband, where: 1) the intent to enter into a marriage solely to gain immigration benefits is sufficient to establish intent to evade the immigration laws, so although husband withdrew his prior petition which was based on a sham marriage and entered a good-faith second marriage, the bar on subsequent petitions under 8 U.S.C. section 1154(c) applies; and 2) petitioners' constitutional claims fail.
