The Eighth Circuit denied the petition for review, holding that the BIA’s determination that the petitioner attempted to procure an adjustment of status by willfully misrepresenting that his marriage to a U.S. citizen was bona fide was supported by substantial evidence that the marriage was a sham. The court found that the unrefuted testimony and documentary evidence submitted by DHS was sufficient to prove that the marriage was fraudulent under INA §212(a)(6)(C)(i), and therefore that the petitioner was removable pursuant to INA §237(a)(1)(A).
