On Sep 29, 2016, the Supreme Court granted a petition for a writ of certiorari in Lynch v. Dimaya, Docket No. 15-4998. In this case, the Supreme Court will consider whether 18 U.S.C. 16(b) (one of the two crime of violence provisions) as incorporated into the INA's provisions governing an alien's removal from the United States is unconstitutionally vague.
