Arguelles-Olivares v. Mukasey, 05-60914

Petition for review of a removal order of petitioner who pled guilty to knowingly filing a false tax return, on the basis that his prior conviction for filing a false federal tax return did not constitute a removable offense, is denied where the record contained evidence, including an admissible Pre-Sentence Investigation Report (PSR) prepared in the tax offense proceedings as evidence of the amount of loss in his immigration proceedings, that supported the BIA's conclusion that plaintiff was an aggravated felon.
