The petition of the day is:

17-616

Issues: (1) Whether a court of appeals may rely on extra-record factual research to decide a petition for review of a removal order despite a statutory command that such a petition be decided “only on the administrative record,” 8 U.S.C. § 1252(b)(4)(A); and (2) whether federal court authority to decide constitutional claims and questions of law under 8 U.S.C. § 1252(a)(2)(D) permits review of legal error in exemption determinations under 8 U.S.C. § 1182(d)(3)(B)(i).
