Walker v. Holder, No. 08-2489

By FindLaw Staff on December 11, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

BIA's ruling denying petitioner's claim of derivative U.S. citizenship and ordering him removed from the U.S. to Jamaica is affirmed where: 1) petitioner failed to establish his claim to derivative U.S. citizenship by a preponderance of credible evidence and is not entitled to such citizenship; and 2) petitioner's claim that he will be deprived of due process of law under the Fifth Amendment if his permanent residence card is revoked retroactively without a formal proceeding is without merit as the card was not lawfully granted in the first place and petitioner received all of the process that he was due.
