Sessions, III, Attorney General of the United States lllllllllllllllllllllRespondent ____________ Petition for Review of an Order of the Board of Immigration Appeals ____________ Submitted: February 20, 2018 Filed: March 5, 2017 [Unpublished] ____________ Before LOKEN, KELLY, and ERICKSON, Circuit Judges. ____________ PER CURIAM. Manuel Ordaz-Flores, a citizen of Mexico, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals upholding an immigration judge’s (IJ’s) decision to deny his application for cancellation of removal on discretionary hardship grounds under 8 U.S.C. § 1229b(b)(1). After careful review, we conclude that the IJ used the proper standard in denying relief, and thus that Ordaz-Flores has not raised a cognizable challenge to the decision below. Accordingly, we lack jurisdiction to review the denial, see Gomez-Perez v. Holder, 569 F.3d 370, 372-73 (8th Cir. 2009), and we dismiss the petition. ______________________________ -2- 17-1665 Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit ca8 8th Cir. Manuel Ordaz-Flores v.
