Flores v. Attorney General US, 16-1979

In a petition for review of a Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) decision finding a Guatemalan petitioner ineligible for withholding of removal because she had been convicted of a 'particularly serious crime' -- namely a conviction of accessory after the fact in South Carolina for witnessing but failing to report a murder -- the petition is granted in part where the South Carolina accessory-after-the-fact conviction is not an offense 'relating to obstruction of justice,' and it cannot be considered either an 'aggravated felony' or a 'particularly serious crime' under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
