In this unpublished decision, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) reconsidered sua sponte its prior determination that the respondent was removable under INA 237(a)(2)(A)(i), which applies to crimes involving moral turpitude for which a sentence of one year or longer may be imposed, because misdemeanor convictions in Georgia are only punishable by a sentence of up to 12 months. The decision was written by Member Neil Miller and joined by Member David Holmes and Member Molly Kendall-Clark.
