Nunez-Vasquez v. Barr

On Monday, July 14, 2020, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals published a decision in Nunez Vasquez v. Barr, finding that convictions under Va. Code 46.3-894 (failure to stop after an accident or “hit and run”) and Va. Code 18.2-186.3(B1) (providing a false name or identification to avoid arrest) are NOT Crimes Involving Moral Turpitude (“CIMTs”). The Court also ordered the government to return Mr. Nunez Vasquez to the United States from Mexico. This is an important decision because CIMT convictions can affect non-citizens’ and even legal permanent residents' (green card holders) eligibility to be released from immigration custody and submit certain applications for relief or benefits.
