In this advisory, we review the Supreme Court’s decision in Dimaya (see Section I) and what the decision may mean for others charged with other similarly nebulous removal grounds (see Section II). We also discuss suggested strategies and provide a sample motion to reconsider for cases affected by Dimaya, which should be filed by May 17, 2018. (see Section III).
