Cortes-Maldanado v. Barr

Ninth circuit decision holding a conviction based on ORS 475.860 (2011), Oregon's former marijuana delivery statute is not an "illicit trafficking offense" and thus not an aggravated felony under the Immigration and Nationality Act. It has a great discussion of the categorical approach to ascertaining whether a conviction is deportable and/or an aggravated felony written by Judge Paez.

Right To Confrontation

Trial of criminal defense cases requires investigating the motive, bias and interest of the accusers bringing the criminal charges. This includes whether or not the accuser or accusers is seeking or have obtained a green card through the Violence Against Woman Act or a U-Visa for victims of any domestic violence, sexual abuse and/or other criminal charges.

Family members of accusers are also eligible for U-Visa certification as "derivatives" or "beneficiaries" of the accusers' potentially false accusations. Ten thousand U-Visas are granted a year in the United States. Juries or Judge fact finders are very interested if in fact the prosecution's chief witness may become a legal permanent resident or U.S. citizen in the future in all likelihood through bringing a possibly fraudulent criminal prosecution against the defendant.

Zealous investigation in criminal defense cases is a priority in defending criminal charges that significantly affect the rest of the defendant's life and freedom.
