Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Defendant's sentence for illegally reentering the U.S. is affirmed where a conviction under 8 U.S.C. section 1324(a)(1) is categorically an "alien smuggling offense" under U.S.S.G. section 2L1.2(b)(1)(A), and thus the district court properly enhanced defendant's sentence.
