Rotimi v. Holder, No. 06-0202

By FindLaw Staff on August 14, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Petition for review of an order holding plaintiff statutorily ineligible for a waiver of inadmissibility and dismissing plaintiff's appeal is denied where the Board of Immigration Appeals' interpretation of "lawfully resided continuously" as used in Immigration and Nationality Act sec. 212(h) and applied to plaintiff is reasonable, and thus plaintiff is ineligible for a INA sec. 212(h) waiver because he did not lawfully reside continuously in the United States for the disputed period of time.
