Supreme Court Oral Argument Analysis: Justices consider federal courts’ statutory authority to review decisions from the Board of Immigration Appeals
ImmigrationProf blogger Kit Johnson On SCOTUSBlog analyzes the oral argument in the Supreme Court on Monday in the consolidated cases of Guerrero-Lasprilla v. Barr and Ovalles v. Barr. These cases focus on the meaning of 8 U.S.C. § 1252(a)(2)(D) and judicial review of "questions of law," mixed questions of law and fact, and fact questions. Kit sees the case as possibly having broad impacts on judicial review of Board of Immigration Appeals rulings.
