US Supreme Court: Drunk Driving Can't Lead to Deportation

 
 
Reply Tue 9 Nov, 2004 10:09 am
In a decision handed down Tuesday morning, the US Supreme Court has ruled that a conviction for drunk driving that results in serious bodily injury is not a "crime of violence" that constitutes an "aggravated felony" under the Immigration and Nationality Act and therefore can't lead to the deportation of a permanent resident involved in accident. The case is Leocal v. Ashcroft.
