Federal 7th Circuit Court
Civil Court
Case Number: 
No. 12-2253
Decision Date: 
March 6, 2013
Federal District: 
Petition for Review, Order of Bd. of Immigration Appeals
Petition denied
IJ did not err in denying application by alien (native of Mexico) for cancellation of removal based upon hardship that said removal would have on alien’s U.S.-born children, where defendant had prior conviction for use of fraudulent Social Security card to obtain employment in violation of 18 USC section 1546(a). Said conviction constituted crime involving moral turpitude that rendered alien ineligible for cancellation of removal.
