SESSIONS III, UNITED STATES ATTORNEY GENERAL, Respondent. _____________________________________ FOR PETITIONERS: Joshua Bardavid, New York, NY. FOR RESPONDENT: Chad A. Readler, Acting Assistant Attorney General; Jessica A. Dawgert, Senior Litigation Counsel; Anthony J. Messuri, Trial Attorney, Office of Immigration Litigation, United States Department of Justice, Washington, D.C. UPON DUE CONSIDERATION of this petition for review of a Board of Immigration Appeals (“BIA”) decision, it is hereby ORDERED, ADJUDGED, AND DECREED that the petition for review is DISMISSED. Petitioners Ewa Anna Szwed Krynska and Dariusz Stanislaw Krynski (“Petitioners”), natives and citizens of Poland, seek review of an August 11, 2016, decision of the BIA affirming a November 10, 2014, decision of an Immigration Judge (“IJ”) denying their applications for cancellation of removal. In re Dariusz Stanislaw Krynski, Ewa Anna Szwed Krynska, Nos. A 098 483 735/737 (B.I.A. Aug. 11, 2016), aff’g Nos. A 098 483 735/737 (Immig. Ct. Hartford Nov. 10, 2014).

Our jurisdiction to review the agency’s denial of cancellation of removal based on Petitioners’ failure to satisfy this hardship requirement is limited to constitutional claims and questions of law. 8 U.S.C. § 1252(a)(2)(B), (D); Barco-Sandoval v. Gonzales, 516 F.3d 35, 3839 (2d Cir. 2008). When assessing jurisdiction, we “study the arguments asserted . . . . to determine, regardless of the rhetoric employed in the petition, whether it merely quarrels over the correctness of the factual findings or justification for the discretionary choices, in which case the court would lack jurisdiction, or whether it instead raises a ‘constitutional 2 claim’ or ‘question of law,’ in which case the court could exercise jurisdiction to review those particular issues.” Xiao Ji Chen v.
