US v. Uvalle-Patricio, 05-40309

A conviction for possession of blank immigration permits is affirmed where: 1) the phrase "any blank permit" in the statute of conviction, includes both genuine and false immigration documents; and 2) a challenge to certain evidentiary rulings failed because defendant failed to argue, let alone establish, that any harm resulted from the rulings.
