Hernandez v. Holder, 14-1148

The BIA's denial of application of cancellation of removal under 8 U.S.C. section 1229b(b)(1) is affirmed where petitioner's prior conviction for a petit larceny offense was properly characterized as a crime involving moral turpitude, even though petitioner had never been lawfully admitted to the U.S. and section 1227(a)(2) makes deportable only persons "in and admitted to the United States."
