Esquivel-Garcia v. Holder, No. 07-70640

By FindLaw Staff on January 31, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Petition for review of the BIA's denial of petitioner's requests for cancellation of removal, adjustment of status and voluntary departure is granted in part where the government needed to put forth reliable evidence to show that the petitioner was convicted of a disqualifying controlled substance offense.  However, the petition is denied in part where there was sufficient evidence to support the Immigration Judge's finding that petitioner had possessed a disqualifying controlled substance, and that precluded adjustment of status.
