An opinion written by Judge Niemeyer of the US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit upheld that the district court’s denial of the defendant’s motion to dismiss an indictment of reentry without permission was correct. The defendant had been removed from the US in 2016 in an expedited removal procedure (8 U. S. C. 1225(b)(1) and then was found in the US some time after the removal. The defendant claimed that his removal was unfair because he had not been afforded legal counsel. The court found that the Due Process Clause did not apply in this case because the defendant was apprehended at the border and removed immediately.
