The adjustments to the illegal re-entry guideline can add 4 to 6 years to a recommended sentence. This presentation focuses on a systematic approach to legal objections involving crimes of violence, drug trafficking offenses, aggravated felonies, and felonies designed to minimize the effect of these upward adjustments.
