NYU Immigration
New York City, N.Y.
Members: Hilda Kajbaf, Neriah Yue, Deborah Brundy
Coaches: Mikayla O'Neal & Jackie Dailey
Description of Issues:

I.  Whether a state conviction for endangerment of a child constitutes a crime involving moral turpitude (CIMT) using the categorical approach. 

II.  Whether a non-citizen's due process rights are violated during an immigration proceeding in which the immigration judge fails to inform the non-citizen of the availability of discretionary relief from removal under section 212(h) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

 

In 2017, Ms. Diamond was removed from the United States pursuant to section 1182 of the INA, after an immigration judge found that her two criminal convictions constituted crimes involving moral turpitude. In the fall of 2018, Customs and Border Patrol apprehended Ms. Diamond attempting to re-enter the United States using a counterfeit passport and charged her with a violation of 8 U.S.C. section 1326. Ms. Diamond's motion to dismiss the indictment was denied by the district court. Her case is now on appeal at the Fourteenth Circuit. To successfully collaterally attack her indictment, Ms. Diamond must prove that either her criminal conviction of child endangerment underpinning her removal was not a crime involving moral turpitude or that her due process rights were violated by the immigration judge's failure to notify her of 212(h) discretionary relief.
