Barradas v. Holder, 08-3440

Petition for review of BIA's decision to remove a Mexican citizen and lawful permanent resident of the United States on the ground that he knowingly attempted to smuggle illegal aliens into the country is denied as there is reasonable, substantial, and probative evidence in the record to support the IJ's and BIA's conclusion that the government proved petitioner's conviction by clear, unequivocal, and convincing evidence. Petitioner's due process claims are rejected as there is substantial support the BIA's findings that he was afforded a full and fair opportunity to present his case before a neutral IJ.
