Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
District court's conviction of defendant for being a felon in possession of a firearm is affirmed where: 1) the 18 U.S.C. section 921(a)(20)(A) exclusion does not apply to defendant's predicate conviction; 2) section 921(a)(20)(A) is not impermissibly vague, as an ordinary individual would have notice that the exception applies only if he or she committed an enumerated or similar offense related to the regulation of business practices; 3) the district court did not clearly err in denying defendant's request to conduct a Franks hearing; and 4) defendant's claim that district court erred in denying his motion to suppress the statements that he made when his home was searched is without merit.
