OPINION

ORDER

For the reasons to be set forth in a disposition to follow, we deny petitioner Ragasa's claim for citizenship. However, we grant the petition for review because his Hawai'i state conviction does not constitute a predicate offense for purposes of removability under Section 237(a)(2)(B)(i) of the INA. of the INA. Therefore, we order the United States to release Ragasa from custody forthwith.
