Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
District court's denial of defendant's motion to suppress his confession and other incriminating statements resulting in his conviction for bank robberies is affirmed where: 1) defendant's question was not a clear and unambiguous request for counsel under the circumstances; and 2) district court did not err in denying defendant's motion to suppress his post-conviction statements where the magistrate judge made a credibility determination that despite defendant's failure to sign the waiver form, he was advised of his Miranda rights and voluntarily agreed to waive them.
