In re: KWOK SUM WONG IN REMOVAL PROCEEDINGS APPEAL ON BEHALF OF RESPONDENT: ON BEHALF OF DHS: Chunyu Jean Wang, Esquire

Immigrant & Refugee Appellate Center | www.irac.net

Timothy Maguire Senior Attorney

CHARGE: Notice: Sec. 237(a)(2)(A)(ii), I&N Act [8 U.S.C. § 1227(a)(2)(A)(ii)] Convicted of two or more crimes involving moral turpitude

APPLICATION: Termination; adjustment of status; waiver of inadmissibility

This matter was last before the Board on May 15, 2012, when we dismissed the respondent's appeal from the Immigration Judge's February 10, 2012, decision finding him removable under section 237(a)(2)(A)(ii) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. § 1227(a)(2)(A)(ii), and denying his applications for relief from removal. This matter is presently before us pursuant to a March 21, 2013, order of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, which approved a stipulation to withdraw the respondent's petition for review and remand the record to the Board for further proceedings. The record will be remanded to the Immigration Judge.
In seeking a remand from the Second Circuit, the parties requested that the Board revisit the

respondent's arguments regarding his removability, "clarify whether a conviction under N.Y.P.L. § 170.10 is categorically for a crime involving moral turpitude, and [] conduct, if necessary, a modified categorical analysis" (Stipulation Order at 2). Due to evolving legal standards, and as resolution of this issue may require fact-finding and the consideration of additional evidence, we will remand the record to the Immigration Judge to further address whether the respondent's conviction under N.Y.P .L. § 170.10 constitutes a crime involving moral turpitude.

See

8 C.F.R.

§ 1003.l(d)(3)(iv); Matter of S-H-, 23 I&N Dec. 462, 464-65 (BIA 2002) (stating that the Board has limited fact-finding authority in the first instance). In addition, on remand, the Immigration Judge may determine whether the Department of Homeland Security has established that the respondent is removable as charged, notwithstanding his conviction under N.Y.P.L. § 170.10. Furthermore, both parties should be afforded the opportunity on remand to update the record to the extent appropriate.
