Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a petition for review of the BIA's order dismissing petitioner's appeal from an Immigration Judge's order finding him removable as an alien convicted of an aggravated felony, the petition is granted where petitioner was not convicted of an aggravated felony as his conviction for violating Article 92 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice did not categorically involve a depiction of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct.
