Theodros v. Gonzales, 05-60980

Petition for review of a decision, which found petitioner removable and denied his application for status adjustment because he had made a false claim to U.S. citizenship to gain employment, is denied where: 1) sufficient evidence clearly supported an IJ's finding that petitioner falsely represented to employers that he was a U.S. citizen; and 2) the BIA reasonably found that private sector employment was a "purpose or benefit" under 8 U.S.C. section 1227(a)(3)(D).
