United States Third Circuit

Saliba v. Attorney General of the US, 15-3769

In a Syrian national's petition for review of a Board of Immigration Appeals decision denying his application for naturalization, the District Court's denial of review is affirmed where petitioner's fraudulent procurement of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) in 1992 made him inadmissible for legal permanent resident (LPR) status, and, because he had not been 'lawfully admitted' for permanent residence, he cannot be naturalized.
