Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Defendant's drug sentence is affirmed where: 1) merely showing that defendant was less culpable than other participants in the conspiracy at issue was not enough to entitle defendant to a minor role adjustment, as defendant was deeply involved in the offense; and 2) the district court's imposition of a five-year term of supervised release was neither an upward departure nor procedural error.
