Gourzong v. Attorney General US, 15-2645

In a Jamaican native's petition for review of Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) decision affirming an Immigration Judge's finding him to be removable pursuant to Section 237(a)(2)(A)(iii) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. section 1227(a)(2)(A)(iii), because he had been convicted of an aggravated felony, specifically, he had been convicted by a special court-martial of the U.S. military of having sexual intercourse with a person under the age of sixteen, the petition is denied where: 1) convictions by special courts-martial qualify as convictions for purposes of the INA; and thus 2) petitioner is removable by reason of committing an aggravated felony within the meaning of the INA.
