Canto v. Holder, 08-4272

Petition for review of the BIA's finding that petitioner is deportable due to his conviction of counterfeiting over two decades ago is denied where: 1) 8 U.S.C. section 1101(a)(43) does not violate the equal protection component of the Due Process Clause; and 2) Immigration Code section 212(c) is not impermissibly retroactive as aliens who went to trial did not forgo any rights in reliance on the continued existence of the section.
