Sawyers v. Holder, 08-70181

Petition for review from the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) denial of cancellation of removal under 8 U.S.C. section 1229b(a), is denied where: 1) because Cuevas-Gaspar and Mercado-Zazueta are no longer valid precedent on the issue of imputation under 8 U.S.C. section 1229b, petitioner’s imputation argument concerning his mother’s residence fails; and 2) the BIA correctly determined that petitioner's 2002 conviction terminated his continuous residence.
