Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Unlawful Reentry Sentence Affirmed
In US v. Flores-Gallo, No. 09-40882, the court affirmed defendant's sentence for unlawful reentry into the U.S., holding that the district court properly found that defendant's prior Kansas aggravated battery offense was a "crime of violence" for sentencing purposes and imposed an enhancement accordingly.
As the court wrote: "Fabian Flores-Gallo appeals the district court's application of a sixteen-level "crime of violence" enhancement pursuant to § 2L1.2(b)(1)(A)(ii) of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines. Flores-Gallo pleaded guilty to being unlawfully present in the United States following deportation."
