Challenging "Controlled Substance" Offenses Under the INA in the 8th Circuit
Join The Binger Center for New Americans partners The Advocates for Human Rights and The University of Minnesota for a groundbreaking CLE to learn how to defend clients with drug convictions who are facing removal in immigration court. After a recent Eighth Circuit decision, state drug offenses may no longer form a basis for deportation. Practitioners will explain why, under this new precedent, cocaine may not be cocaine, methamphetamine may not be methamphetamine, and isomers may make most drug convictions overbroad--and how immigration and criminal defense attorneys can use this precedent to secure better outcomes for their clients.
