Sijapati v. Boente, 15-1804

In a petition filed by a native and citizen of Nepal, seeking review of an order by the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) finding him removable under Section 237(a)(2)(A)(i) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. section 1227(a)(2)(A)(i), the petition is denied where Chevron deference is given to the BIA's reliance on its decision in Matter of Alyazji to determine that petitioner's relevant 'date of admission' was the date he was most recently admitted to the U.S. after taking a brief vacation abroad.
