Sarbpreet Singh, a native and citizen of India, petitions for review of the denial of his most recent motion to reopen. In denying the motion, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) first determined that it was number-barred, untimely, and did not fit within any of the exceptions to the filing requirements. Second, the BIA declined to exercise its sua sponte authority to reopen, asserting that it had considered the record in its entirety, it had considered Singh's arguments, and Singh had not shown an exceptional situation warranting exercise of its discretion to reopen sua sponte. In support of this decision, the BIA cited Matter of J----J----, 21 I. & N. Dec. 976, 984 (BIA 1997).
Singh does not challenge the merits of the BIA's first ruling. Instead, he contends that the BIA's order contained only two sentences; the order did not show that the BIA had engaged in reasoned decision-making; and the order thus did not comply with the Administrative Procedure Act (APA). He asks us to remand to require the BIA to provide additional reasons for its decision. Additionally, Singh contends that Matter of V----X----, 26 I. & N. Dec. 147 (BIA 2013), constituted a fundamental change in the law warranting sua sponte reopening and that Matter of V----X---- establishes that incorrect procedures and regulations were used in terminating his asylum, ordering his removal, and denying his applications for adjustment of status.
The APA does not apply to individual adjudications under the immigration laws. See Ardestani v. INS, 502 U.S. 129, 133-34 (1991). Accordingly, we DENY Singh's request for remand.
Regarding Singh's argument that the BIA erred in denying his motion to reopen, we lack jurisdiction to review the BIA's refusal to exercise its discretionary, sua sponte authority to reopen a case. Enriquez-Alvarado v. Ashcraft, 371 F.3d 246, 249-50 (5
We DISMISS Singh's petition for review.
