"In 2004, Jesus Contreras-Bocanegra was traveling between the
United States and Mexico when he caught the attention of
immigration officials. Though the Lehi man had been a legal
resident of the United States for more than 20 years, he also
reportedly had a minor drug conviction from the early 1990s. As
Contreras-Bocanegra crossed the border, that conviction somehow
landed him on the government's radar and set in motion a series of
events that would lead to his deportation. Monday, however, Contreras-Bocanegra won a victory in the U.S.
Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, which could ultimately
reunite him with his family in Utah and which could have
far-reaching consequences on immigration cases in the U.S." - Daily Herald, Jan. 31, 2012.
