Duenas-Sanchez v. Garland

Case: 21-60913 Document: 00516487653 Page: 1 Date Filed: 09/28/2022 United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit United States Court of Appeals Fifth Circuit No. 21-60913 FILED September 28, 2022 Summary Calendar Lyle W. Cayce Clerk Maynor Duenas-Sanchez, Petitioner, versus Merrick Garland, U.S. Attorney General, Respondent. Petition for Review of an Order of the Board of Immigration Appeals Agency No. A078 969 144 Before Jones, Haynes, and Oldham, Circuit Judges. Per Curiam:* Maynor Duenas-Sanchez, a native and citizen of Guatemala, timely petitions us for review of the Board of Immigration Appeal’s order which affirmed the Immigration Judge’s denial of his motion to reconsider the denial of his motion to reopen his removal order. * Pursuant to 5th Circuit Rule 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5th Circuit Rule 47.5.4. Case: 21-60913 Document: 00516487653 Page: 2 Date Filed: 09/28/2022 No. 21-60913 This court reviews the denial of a motion to reconsider under an abuse-of-discretion standard. Gonzales-Veliz v. Barr, 938 F.3d 219, 226 (5th Cir. 2019). Under this standard, Duenas-Sanchez must identify either a “change in the law, a misapplication of the law, or an aspect of the case that the BIA overlooked.” Zhao v. Gonzales, 404 F.3d 295, 304 (5th Cir. 2005)). The BIA's decision will stand unless it was “capricious, racially invidious [or] utterly without foundation in the evidence.” Id. (quoting Pritchett v. INS, 993 F.2d 80, 83 (5th Cir. 1993)). Reconsideration “is not the proper avenue for raising new issues or arguments.” Omari v. Holder, 562 F.3d 314, 319 (5th Cir. 2009). Relying on Omari, the BIA concluded that the IJ was correct in determining that raising new issues in the motion for reconsideration was improper. We lack jurisdiction to review the arguments presented by Duenas- Sanchez as they were not first presented in the original motion to reopen and so are unexhausted. See id. DISMISSED. 2 21-60913 Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ca5 5th Cir. Duenas-Sanchez v. Garland 28 September 2022 Immigration Unpublished 5d126a83c6b08ed97a9edb02b540149a23874e5d
