Cespedes v Lynch

Cespedes petitioned for review of the decision of the immigration appeal board affirming the order of removal based on violating a state protective order arguing no contact provisions cannot trigger removal. The panel affirmed. It held that e language of 8 USC 1227(a)(2)(E)(ii) could reasonably be read to extend to no contact orders in domestic violence cases, the immigration board has adopted that reading of the term “involves protection” against domestic violence and the statute does not require a state court determination whether 1227(a)(2)(E)(ii) is satisfied.
