Ratings: (0)|Views: 526|Likes:
In this unpublished decision, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) upheld an order terminating proceedings upon finding bulk cash smuggling under 31 U.S.C. 5332(a) is not a crime involving moral turpitude because it is a "reporting offense" and does not require proof that concealed currency was proceeds of criminal activity. The Board also stated that it could not progress beyond the first step of Matter of Silva-Trevino, 24 I&N Dec. 687 (AG 2008), because it found the offense did not include the required element of moral turpitude. The decision was written by Member Hugh Mullane and joined by Member Michael Creppy and Member Ana Mann.
