Mondragon v. Holder, 11-2133

Petitions for review is denied, where: 1) the BIA's application of the modified categorical approach was appropriate to determine if petitioner was eligible for discretionary relief from his removal under the Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act; 2) the BIA correctly concluded that petitioner failed to carry his burden to show that his conviction was not a crime of violence; and 3) application of the statue defining "aggravated felony" retroactively did not violate petitioner's due process rights.
