CA3 on VAWA Cancellation: Ramos da Silva v. Atty. Gen.

Ramos da Silva v. Atty. Gen.

"Appellant Ludimilla Ramos Da Silva petitions for review of her final order of removal. She contends that the Board of Immigration Appeals erred when it concluded that her convictions for assaulting her husband’s mistress were not “connected to” the extreme cruelty she suffered, rendering her ineligible for cancellation of removal. We agree. For the reasons that follow, we will grant Da Silva’s petition for review and vacate the BIA’s removal order."
