Gurinder Singh v. Eric H. Holder

UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE NINTH CIRCUIT


January 24, 2011

GURINDER SINGH, PETITIONER,
v.
ERIC H. HOLDER, JR., ATTORNEY GENERAL, RESPONDENT.

Agency No. A075-248-076

FILED

NOT FOR PUBLICATION

MOLLY C. DWYER, CLERK U.S. COURT OF APPEALS

MEMORANDUM*fn1

On Petition for Review of an Order of the Board of Immigration Appeals Submitted January 10, 2011*fn2

Before: BEEZER, TALLMAN, and CALLAHAN, Circuit Judges.

Gurinder Singh, a native and citizen of India, petitions for review of the Board of Immigration Appeals' ("BIA") order denying his second motion to rescind his in absentia removal order. Our jurisdiction is governed by 8 U.S.C. § 1252. We review for abuse of discretion the denial of a motion to reopen, and review de novo questions of law. Mohammed v. Gonzales, 400 F.3d 785, 791-92 (9th Cir. 2005). We deny in part and dismiss in part the petition for review.

The agency did not abuse its discretion in denying Singh's motion as number-barred, see 8 C.F.R. § 1003.23(b)(4)(ii), and Singh failed to demonstrate that he acted with the due diligence required for equitable tolling, see Iturribarria v. INS, 321 F.3d 889, 897 (9th Cir. 2003) (equitable tolling available "when a petitioner is prevented from filing because of deception, fraud, or error, as long as the petitioner acts with due diligence").

Singh's contention that 8 C.F.R. § 1003.23(b)(4)(ii) is unconstitutional is unavailing.

To the extent Singh challenges the immigration judge's June 11, 1998, decision, we lack jurisdiction because Singh did not appeal from that decision to the BIA. See Barron v. Ashcroft, 358 F.3d 674, 678 (9th Cir. 2004).

Singh's remaining contentions are unavailing.

PETITION FOR REVIEW DENIED in part; DISMISSED in part.
