Jose Salazar-Rodriguez v. Jefferson Sessions

NOT FOR PUBLICATION FILED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS DEC 22 2017 MOLLY C. DWYER, CLERK U.S. COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE NINTH CIRCUIT JOSE SALAZAR RODRIGUEZ, No. 14-71740 Petitioner, Agency No. A077-184-128 v. MEMORANDUM* JEFFERSON B. SESSIONS III, Attorney General, Respondent. On Petition for Review of an Order of the Board of Immigration Appeals Submitted December 18, 2017** Before: WALLACE, SILVERMAN, and BYBEE, Circuit Judges. Jose Salazar Rodriguez, a native and citizen of Mexico, petitions for review of the Board of Immigration Appeals’ order dismissing his appeal from an immigration judge’s decision finding him removable. We have jurisdiction under 8 U.S.C. § 1252. We review for substantial evidence the agency’s factual findings. * This disposition is not appropriate for publication and is not precedent except as provided by Ninth Circuit Rule 36-3. ** The panel unanimously concludes this case is suitable for decision without oral argument. See Fed. R. App. P. 34(a)(2). Valadez-Munoz v. Holder, 623 F.3d 1304, 1308 (9th Cir. 2010). We deny the petition for review. Substantial evidence supports the agency’s determination that Salazar Rodriguez is inadmissible under 8 U.S.C. § 1182(a)(6)(C)(ii) because he made a false claim of United States citizenship to gain entry to the United States. See Valadez-Munoz, 623 F.3d at 1308-09 (record did not compel reversal of agency’s determination that petitioner made a false claim of citizenship where he presented border officials with a Texas birth certificate and a California driver license under a different identity in his attempt to enter the United States). Thus, we deny the petition for review. PETITION FOR REVIEW DENIED. 2 14-71740 14-71740 Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ca9 9th Cir. Jose Salazar-Rodriguez v.
