Immigration Authorities: Deportation Proceedings and Dhs Official

immigration authorities: Four months later, federal prosecutors ended the deportation proceedings, citing an unrelated 10th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that found a portion of federal immigration law defining what makes crimes violent and making it easier to deport someone convicted of such a crime too vague, according to Vancouver Courier. He was released on Nov. 7, 2016, the official said. The DHS official, who was not authorized to discuss the case on the record and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, said Monday that federal immigration authorities began deportation proceedings against Karrar Noaman Al Khammasi after he violated probation terms of a felony trespassing plea in 2015.article continues below Trending StoriesB.C.'s youth voters targeted in Apathy is Boring campaign Keepers of East Van book box want to stamp out re-selling East Van house fire results in city's sixth fire-related death in 2018No need to fret, Vancouver guitar festival is back and bigger than ever The official said an immigration judge ordered on June 13, 2016, that Al Khammasi be removed from the country. In the appeals case, Moldova native Constantine Fedor Golicov was convicted in Utah of failing to stop at a police officer's command, prompting immigration officials to begin deportation proceedings against him. The U.S. Supreme Court took up a similar case this year, striking down part of federal immigration law making it easier to deport immigrants convicted of a crime of violence. On appeal, Golicov argued that federal law outlining classes of immigrants who could be deported, including those convicted of a crime of violence, was unconstitutionally vague and should not be used to justify his removal from the country.
