Possession of 400 Grams of Cocaine NOT an Aggravated Felony


Reposted from www.nyimmigration.org :

In an unpublished decision by the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) dated March 27,2015, the BIA came to the conclusion that a conviction under N.C. Gen. Stat. §90-95(h)(3) is not categorically an aggravated felony.
