By Solange Uwimana

In a June 2006 report on aggravated felonies in immigration law, the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a data gathering and research organization at Syracuse University, noted that congressional legislation has "expanded the definition of aggravated felony several times" to include many crimes that "have been interpreted by federal courts to include misdemeanors, even though misdemeanors are generally meant to encompass less serious or dangerous acts than crimes traditionally designated as felonies."
