CA1 on Categorical Approach: Da Graca v. Garland

January 19, 2022 (1 min read)

Da Graca v. Garland

"Aires Daniel Benros Da Graca petitions for review of a decision of the Board of Immigration Appeals (the "Board") affirming his order of removal and denying his requests for cancellation of removal and voluntary departure. Because we find that a conviction under Rhode Island General Laws ("RIGL") ยง 31-9-1 is not categorically a theft offense, we grant the petition for review, vacate the decision below, and remand for further proceedings."

[Hats off to Randy Olen and Robert F. Weber!]
