WEBINAR: DIMAYA PART 4: ANALYZING DIMAYA’S IMPACT ON IMMIGRATION CASES

Mr. Dimaya was a lawful permanent resident, who pled guilty to residential burglary, and an Immigration Judge determined that his convictions were “crime[s] of violence” under 18 U.S.C. § 16 (b), thus making him removable from the United States under the Immigration and Nationality Act. The Supreme Court held that 16(b) was unconstitutionally vague. What does this decision mean for other noncitizen defendants facing criminal and non-criminal grounds of removal? What about those who are charged with illegal reentry based on a crime of violence conviction? In this 4th part of the Dimaya webinar series, we will discuss the immigration implications of Dimaya, review recent circuit court and Board of Immigration appeals cases, and provide strategies for defending noncitizens against criminal prosecutions in light of this and other recent Supreme Court decisions.
