PC 1473.7 Motion--Prejudice From Trial Counsel's Failure to Properly Advise on Immigration Consequences

Did the Court of Appeal err in ruling that defendant failed to demonstrate prejudice within the meaning of Penal Code section 1473.7 from trial counsel's failure to properly advise him of the immigration consequences of his plea? (People v. Vivar (2019) 43 Cal.App.5th 216, review granted 3/25/2020 (S260270/E070926).)
