More SCOTUS oral arg. recaps: Holder v. Sawyers; Holder v. Gutierrez

Link to the SCOTUSblog page for Holder v. Sawyers (arg. 1-18-12) including links to all the briefs, etc.  Ditto for Holder v. Gutierrez, also 1-18-12.  Argument recap by Prof. Jill Family: "At oral argument on January 18, the Court questioned the attorneys in Holder v. Gutierrez and Holder v. Sawyers about calculating relief from removal.  At issue in these consolidated cases is whether a parent’s immigration status and residency in the United States may be imputed to a minor child to calculate eligibility for relief from removal.  The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) said no; the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit said yes."
