Jaquez v. Sessions, 16-1147

In a citizen and native of Mexico's petitions for review of a Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) order affirming an Immigration Judge's (IJ) decision finding him ineligible for cancellation of removal pursuant to 8 U.S.C. section 1229b(b)(1)(C), the petition is denied where petitioner's 2005 criminal proceedings under Virginia Code section 18.2-251 for possession of cocaine constituted a 'conviction' as defined in 8 U.S.C. section 1101(a)(48)(A).
