BIA: Bribery of a Public Official is not an Aggravated Felony

The Board of Immigration Appeals in Matter of Greunangerl

25 I&N Dec. 351 (BIA 2010) held  "The crime of bribery of a public official in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 201(b)(1)(A) (2006) is not an offense “relating to” commercial bribery and is therefore not an aggravated felony under section 101(a)(43)(R) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. § 1101(a)(43)(R) (2006)."
