Vartelas v. Holder

The Supreme Court has agreed to address whether IIRAIRA's definition of when a lawful permanent resident is seeking "admission" should be applied to an LPR returning after a brief, innocent, and casual trip abroad who pled guilty to a crime of moral turpitude prior to IIRAIRA.  Vartelas is a Second Circuit case that conflicts with decisions from the Ninth and Fourth Circuits. See Camins v. Gonzales, 500 F.3d 872 (9th Cir. 2007); Olatunji v. Ashcroft, 387 F.3d 383 (4th Cir. 2004).
