STELLA ENGWARLI TEKU, Petitioner, v. JEFFERSON B. SESSIONS III, Attorney General, Respondent.

United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.

Decided June 14, 2017.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Ronald D. Richey , LAW OFFICE OF RONALD D. RICHEY, Rockville, Maryland, for Petitioner.

Chad A. Readler , Acting Assistant Attorney General, Anthony P. Nicastro , Assistant Director, S. Nicole Nardone , Office of Immigration Litigation, UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Washington, D.C., for Respondent.

Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion.


Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.


Stella Engwarli Teku, a native and citizen of Cameroon, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (Board) denying her motion to reopen. We have reviewed the administrative record and Teku's claims, and conclude that the Board did not abuse its discretion in denying her motion. See 8 C.F.R. § 1003.2(a) (2016); Mosere v. Mukasey, 552 F.3d 397, 400 (4th Cir. 2009).* We further find Teku's due process claim to be without merit. Accordingly, we deny the petition for review for the reasons stated by the Board. See In re Teku (B.I.A. Aug. 18, 2016). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process.



* To the extent Teku seeks to challenge the Board's decision declining to reopen her proceedings sua sponte, we lack jurisdiction to review that aspect of its decision. Mosere, 552 F.3d at 400-01.
