Puc-Ruiz v. Holder, No. 09-1296

By FindLaw Staff on December 29, 2010 2:39 PM

Petition for Review of Removal Order

In Puc-Ruiz v. Holder, No. 09-1296, a petition for review of a Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) decision dismissing petitioner's appeal from an Immigration Judge's (IJ) order removing him from the United States to Mexico, the court denied the petition where 1) there was no evidence in the record that the St. Charles police employed an unreasonable show or use of force in arresting and detaining petitioner; and 2) the BIA did not err in affirming the IJ's determination that petitioner's statements to an agent regarding his alienage and lack of lawful status in the U.S. were voluntarily made and need not be suppressed.

  • As the court wrote:  "Gates applied for disability insurance benefits under Title II of the Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C. § 423, and for supplemental security income under Title XVI of that Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1382, alleging that she had been disabled since April 15, 2004. Her applications were denied initially, on reconsideration, and after a hearing before an administrative law judge ("ALJ"). The Appeals Council, however, remanded Gates' claims to the ALJ for further consideration."
