United States Third Circuit


Mayorga v. Attorney General United States, 13-2011

The finding by the Immigration Judge (IJ) and the Board of Immigration Appeals that petitioner had violated a statute that categorically involves moral turpitude by firearms dealing without a license, thereby rendering him inadmissible for life is reversed, where: 1) petitioner would suffer a serious adverse consequence if his crime of conviction were found to categorically be a Crime Involving Moral Turpitude (CIMT), and his challenge to the IJ's CIMT ruling is therefore justiciable; and 2) petitioner's crime of conviction is not categorically a CIMT under the Immigration and Nationality Act.
