Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

11th Circuit on the Categorical Approach

Rate this Entry

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals has just reversed a decision of the Board of Immigration Appeals finding that a conviction for the extortionate extension of credit under 18 U.S.C. 892(a) is not categorically a crime of violence under 18 U.S.C. 16, and therefore not an aggravated felony under INA 101(a)(43)(F). 


The 11th ruled that the Statute covers offenses that do not constitute crimes of violence and remanded the case back to the BIA for a proper analysis. See Accardo v. U.S. Att'y Gen., 3/10/11, No. 09-15446 (11th Cir.).
