CA5 on Retroactivity: Lopez Ventura v. Sessions

Lopez Ventura v. Sessions - "Because the application of § 1182(a)(2)(A)(i)(II) to Lopez Ventura is impermissibly retroactive, we grant the petition for review, reverse the order of the BIA, and remand for the BIA to determine whether Lopez Ventura was convicted of possessing marihuana or, instead, AB-CHMINACA."
