Kellermann v. Holder, No. 08-3927

A petition for review of BIA's final order of removal of a German citizen is denied as, petitioner's convictions under 18 U.S.C. sections 371 and 1001 (making false statements to an agency of the U.S. and conspiracy for failure to provide accurate financial records in connection with a grant he received from the government) constituted aggravated felonies as defined at INA section 101(a)(43)(M)(i), rendering him ineligible for cancellation of removal.
