Karimijanaki v. Holder, No. 08-4622

In a petition for review of the BIA's order removing Petitioner from the U.S., the petition is denied where sufficient evidence supported the BIA's rulings that: 1) Petitioner abandoned her lawful permanent resident status; 2) her seven-year absence from the U.S. was not a temporary visit abroad; 3) her conduct was imputable to her son (an unemancipated minor during the relevant period); and 4) the son did not automatically acquire citizenship based upon his father's naturalization prior to the removal proceedings.
