Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
An enhanced sentence of defendant to 188 months' imprisonment as an armed career criminal following four firearm convictions is vacated and remanded where, because the state of Illinois sent defendant a document stating that his principal civil rights have been restored, while neglecting to mention the continuing firearms disability, the final sentence of 18 U.S.C. section 921(a)(20) means that his burglary convictions do not count for federal purposes.
