CA4 Rides Rojas Shark Over Reason’s Hurdle: Hosh v. Lucero

"We hold that the BIA’s interpretation of § 1226(c) in Rojas was reasonable, and must be afforded deference. Moreover, the Government’s supposed failure to comply with a statutory immediacy requirement—when the statute does not specify a consequence for such noncompliance—does not bestow a windfall upon criminal aliens. Hosh, therefore, remains subject to mandatory detention." – Hosh v. Lucero, May 29, 2012.

[Proving, once again, that when the target is 'criminal aliens,' no bar is too low to limbo.]
