The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) has reaffirmed its prior determination that a conviction for misprision of a felony is a crime involving moral turpitude.  "Considering the language of the misprision statute, we conclude that the affirmative act of concealing a known felony is deceitful and dishonest and is therefore reprehensible conduct that involves moral turpitude, regardless of whether the underlying felony is also a crime involving moral turpitude." 

IThe BIA recognized that its decision was contrary to the Ninth Circuit's caselaw on the topic, and indicated that it would apply the Ninth Circuits decision in Robles-Urrea v. Holder to any cases arising within the Ninth Circuit.
