Where a defendant challenged her conviction for knowingly making a false statement with respect to a material fact in an immigration matter, the evidence was sufficient for a reasonable jury to find beyond reasonable doubt that the defendant knowingly made the false statement that she had never before filed a Form I-130 for any alien based on the testimony of two witnesses, and the evidence was also sufficient to support the jury’s finding that the false statement was made with respect to a material fact, so the judgment is affirmed.
Judgment is affirmed.
