The conference officially kicked off this morning.  Many of the attendees were disappointed with the Supreme Court's decision this morning in United States v. Texas, where a divided court allowed the injunction of President Obama's executive action on immigration to remain in place.  However, I was excited about the Supreme Court's decision in Mathis v. United States, which directly impacted the panel I sat on this afternoon discussing the modified categorical approach.  I also attended panels on the categorical approach and on new case law from the Board of Immigration Appeals and the federal circuit courts.  I'm looking forward to attending some of the conference's social events tonight to see colleagues from around the country.
