Perriello v. Napolitano, No. 05-2868

By FindLaw Staff on September 02, 2009 4:49 PM

In a petition for review of a BIA order finding petitioner ineligible for relief from removal, the petition is denied where: 1) petitioner did not establish prima facie eligibility for naturalization; and 2) he was barred from relief under Section 212(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act by virtue of Section 511(a) of the Immigration Act of 1990, because he had been previously convicted of an aggravated felony.
