Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Defendant's sentence for illegal reentry into the US is affirmed where: 1) a prior conviction for a violation of California Penal Code section 245(a)(1) qualifies as a "crime of violence" within the meaning of U.S.S.G. section 2L1.2(b)(1)(A)(ii); and 2) because defendant's objections to the presentence report were legal, not factual, the district court was not required to make any factual determinations, and so committed no error.
