US v. Boskic, No. 07-1188. This is a big case under the Fifth and Sixth amendments. The First sides with the government. The defendant, a Bosnian, was “guilty on two counts of making false statements in his applications for refugee status and permanent residency in the United States. See 18 U.S.C. § 1546." Essentially, he is claimed to have lied on his application for refugee status by omitting the fact that he was involved in killing a lot of people when he was in the military.
