Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorThe second Ohio State wide receiver came off the board at the 2019 NFL Draft as Terry McLaurin was taken with the No. 76 overall pick to the Washington Redskins in the thirdround Friday.McLaurin pulled in a Big Ten second-most 11 touchdowns in 2018, along with 701 yards on just 35 receptions for team-high 20 yards-per-catch average.His 11 touchdowns this past season bring McLaurin to a career total of 19, which both rank No. 6 in program history for season and career receiving scores.McLaurin would go onto play in four victories over Michigan, three bowl game wins and assist in back-to-back Big Ten Championships in the past two seasons.The five-year receiver was a primary contributor to a Ohio State receiving core that assisted former Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins in setting new records for Big Ten passing yardage and touchdowns in a single-season, along with school records for yards and touchdowns through the air in a single game.From 2015 to 2018, McLaurin did not miss any of Ohio State’s 54 games, which displays a durability that should help him at the next level, along with the 4.35-second 40-yard dash time he posted at the NFL Combine. read more

Supreme Court Strikes Down Part Of Immigration Law

first_img Share Drew Angerer/Getty ImagesPresident Trump has hailed his appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, but Gorsuch sided against the administration Tuesday in an immigration case.The U.S. Supreme Court declared a clause in federal law, requiring the deportation of immigrants convicted of a “crime of violence,” unconstitutionally vague Tuesday.It’s a blow to the Trump Justice Department and came at the hands, ironically, of conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch, who sided with the court’s liberals in a 5-4 decision.In 2015, the court also held that a clause alluding to a “violent felony” in the Armed Career Criminal Act was unconstitutionally vague.For background on the case, Sessions v. Dimaya, here’s Oyez‘s summary:“James Garcia Dimaya, a native and citizen of the Philippines, was admitted to the United States as a lawful permanent resident in 1992. In 2007 and 2009, Dimaya was convicted under the California Penal Code for first-degree residential burglary; both convictions resulted in two years’ imprisonment. Under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), a non-citizen convicted of an aggravated felony is subject to deportation. The INA definition of  aggravated felony includes a ‘crime of violence,’ which is any offense that involves the use or substantial risk of physical force against another person or property.The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) subsequently initiated deportation proceedings against Dimaya and claimed that his burglary convictions constituted crimes of violence under the Act. The Immigration Judge held that Dimaya was deportable and that burglary constitutes a crime of violence because it always involves a risk of physical violence. The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) affirmed.“While Dimaya’s appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit was pending, the U.S. Supreme Court decided Johnson v. United States, which held  that the definition of a ‘violent felony’ in the Armed Career Criminal Act (ACCA) was unconstitutionally vague. As a result, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit held that the INA’s crime of violence provision was unconstitutionally vague because it was largely similar to the violent felony provision in the ACCA that the Supreme Court struck down in Johnson. The appellate court found that both provisions denied fair notice to defendants and failed to make clear when a risk of violence could be considered substantial.”Overseas emails case vacatedAlso, given that President Trump signed the CLOUD Act, the court officially vacated the major U.S. v. Microsoft case dealing with whether email stored in servers abroad could be compelled to be turned over to law enforcement.That move was largely expected at some point.Copyright 2018 NPR.
