CA3 on CIMT, Retroactivity: Francisco-Lopez v. Barr

Francisco-Lopez v. Barr

"We grant review and join several other circuits in ruling that the BIA should not have retroactively applied Diaz-Lizarraga. See Monteon-Camargo v. Barr, 918 F.3d 423 (5th Cir. 2019); Garcia-Martinez v. Sessions, 886 F.3d 1291 (9th Cir. 2018); Obeya v. Sessions, 884 F.3d 442 (2d Cir. 2018); Lucio-Rayos v. Sessions, 875 F.3d 573 (10th Cir. 2017). We will vacate the BIA’s order and remand to the BIA for further proceedings."
