Jiang Rui v. Jefferson Sessions III

UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 18-1038 JIANG DIAN RUI, Petitioner, v. JEFFERSON B. SESSIONS III, Attorney General, Respondent. On Petition for Review of an Order of the Board of Immigration Appeals. Submitted: May 25, 2018 Decided: June 11, 2018 Before KING, KEENAN, and FLOYD, Circuit Judges. Petition denied in part, dismissed in part by unpublished per curiam opinion. Bruno Joseph Bembi, Hempstead, New York, for Petitioner. Chad A. Readler, Acting Assistant Attorney General, Carl McIntyre, Assistant Director, Brooke M. Maurer, Office of Immigration Litigation, UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Washington, D.C., for Respondent. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Jiang Dian Rui, a native and citizen of the People’s Republic of China, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (Board) denying his motion to reopen. We have reviewed the administrative record and the Board’s order and conclude that the Board did not abuse its discretion in denying the motion as untimely. See 8 C.F.R. § 1003.2(c)(2) (2017). We therefore deny the petition for review in part for the reasons stated by the Board. See In re Jiang Dian Rui (B.I.A. Dec. 13, 2017). Rui also challenges the Board’s refusal to exercise its sua sponte authority to reopen his proceedings. We lack jurisdiction to review how the Board exercises its sua sponte discretion. See Lawrence v. Lynch, 826 F.3d 198, 206-07 (4th Cir. 2016); Mosere v. Mukasey, 552 F.3d 397, 400-01 (4th Cir. 2009). We therefore dismiss the petition for review in part. We grant Rui’s pending motion to submit on the briefs and dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process. PETITION DENIED IN PART; DISMISSED IN PART 2 18-1038 Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit ca4 4th Cir. Jiang Rui v.
