Court Finds Florida Conviction for Sale of Cocaine to Be an “Illicit Trafficking” Aggravated Felony

The Eleventh Circuit held that the BIA did not err in concluding that the petitioner was ineligible for cancellation of removal because his Florida conviction for sale of cocaine constituted illicit trafficking within the meaning of INA §101(a)(43)(B).

Drug Trafficking found to be particularly serious crime

  1. The Fourth Circuit upheld the BIA and the IJ’s determination that the petitioner’s aggravated felony conviction for a drug trafficking crime, for which the petitioner received a sentence of five years’ imprisonment, was per se a particularly serious crime under INA §241(b)(3)(B). The court thus found that the petitioner was ineligible for withholding of removal.
