Supreme Court to Decide If Underreporting Income Merits Deportation

The Supreme Court on Monday granted certiorari in Kawashima v. Holder, 615 F.3d 1043 (9th Cir. 2010). The question presented is:

Whether, in direct conflict with the Third Circuit, the Ninth Circuit erred in holding that Petitioners' convictions of filing, and aiding and abetting in filing, a false statement on a corporate tax return in violation of 26 U.S.C. §§ 7206(1) and (2) were aggravated felonies involving fraud and deceit under 8 U.S.C. § 1101(a)(43)(M)(i), and Petitioners were therefore removable.
