Second Circuit: Flores v. Holder

Immigration --

Agency abuse of discretion in not granting continuance given prima facie validity of underlying application.

Agency erred in modified categorical evaluation of statute -- illicit sexual contact is not abuse per se.

No error in holding that the crimes were sufficiently serious to bar withholding of removal without considering danger of Petitioner to community.
