Administrative – Immigrant’s Prior Conviction Was ‘Crime of Violence’ (access required)

Mondragon v. Holder A Salvadoran citizen who had temporary protected status is not eligible for discretionary relief from removal under the Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act because his 1996 conviction of assault and battery qualifies as a “crime of violence”; the 4th Circuit says he may not “retry” the A&B case during immigration proceedings to show that it was nonviolent.
