Deferring to the Board of Immigration Appeals' decision in Matter of Pina-Galindo, the Fifth Circuit held that a non-citizen who is inadmissible under section 212(a)(2)(B) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, for having been convicted of two or more offenses for which the aggregate sentences of confinement were 5 years or more, was not eligible for cancellation of removal for non-lawful permanent residents.  In so doing, the Fifth Circuit confirmed that the convictions need be for crimes involving moral turpitude or controlled substance offenses to render the non-citizen ineligible.
