Herrera-Castillo v. Holder, No. 08-9538

In a petition for review of a BIA order finding petitioner ineligible for adjustment of immigration status, the petition is denied where 8 U.S.C. section 1255(i) reasonably suggests that Congress considers aliens who accrue a period of unlawful presence more culpable than those immigration violators who do not, and thus, that the former are less deserving of relief under section 1255(i).
