CA3 on Agg. Fel., CAT, El Salvador: Quinteros v. Atty. Gen.

Quinteros v. Atty. Gen.

"The Board of Immigration Appeals found that Nelson Quinteros committed an aggravated felony and failed to show entitlement to relief under the Convention Against Torture (CAT). Quinteros argues that the Board committed two errors: First, the Board erred in finding that his conviction for conspiracy to commit assault with a dangerous weapon was an aggravated felony under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA); second, the Board erred in applying our precedent on the Convention Against Torture. For the reasons that follow, we will vacate the Board’s decision and remand for further proceedings consistent with this opinion."

[NOTE: Please read the scathing concurrence!  Hats way off to Damon C. Andrews (ARGUED), Alexa M. Siegel and Nathanael P. Kibler!]
