Refugees/asylees. DUI with injury may be treated as a “particularly serious crime,” which is bad for refugees, asylees, and applicants for asylum.1See Avendano-Hernandez v. Lynch, 800 F.3d 1072 (9th Cir. 2015) (depending upon individual circumstances, the BIA can properly find that a conviction of Veh Code § 23153(b) is a particularly serious crime). (DUI without injury should not be, but no guarantee.) See also Advice to 23152 re proposed asylum regs.
