Cert. Granted in Esquivel-Quintana

Michael Carlin writes: "The Supreme Court granted cert in Esquivel-Quintana v. Lynch.  I have been representing Mr. Esquivel-Quintana before the BIA and before the Sixth Circuit.  Before the Supreme Court, I am working with Jeffrey Fisher (counsel of record) and others at Stanford's Supreme Court Litigation Clinic.  The Supreme Court will be deciding whether a conviction under one of the seven state statutes criminalizing consensual sexual intercourse between a 21-year-old and someone almost 18 constitutes an “aggravated felony” of “sexual abuse of a minor” under 8 U.S.C. § 1101(a)(43)(A) of the Immigration and Nationality Act – and therefore constitutes grounds for mandatory removal."
