Matter of Roderick

In a recent case of Matter of Roderick[1], it was observed that a criminal statute is divisible, regardless of its structure, if, based on the elements of the offense, some but not all violations of the statute give rise to grounds for removal or ineligibility for relief.

[1] 25 I&N Dec.721 (BIA 2012); case decided march 9, 2012
