Dear Editor:
On Thursday, Sept. 18, the NY Law Journal reported that the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the BIA cannot rely on the "narrative statements" of police reports to determine that individuals have committed aggravated felonies and therefore should be deported under immigration law. "The opinion, written by Judge Sonia Sotomayor, held that a decision by the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) to deport John P. Dickson for committing first-degree unlawful imprisonment was improperly based on the written hearsay of a probation officer contained in Mr. Dickson's pre-sentence report." The decision will be released and published by the NY Law Journal on Monday. I'm sure Immigration Daily will want to note it as well. By the way, you have a great periodical going here. It's the first email I check every day when I come in. Timely, informative articles, great links, and easy reading. In a time of information overload, Immigration Daily is a quick refreshing read.
