Rosillo-Puga v. Holder, No. 07-9564

By FindLaw Staff on September 15, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a petition for review of the denial of petitioner's motion to reconsider or reopen his deportation proceedings, the petition is denied where 8 C.F.R. section 1003.23(b)(1) was a valid exercise of the Attorney General's Congressionally-delegated rule-making authority, and did not contravene 8 U.S.C. sections 1229a(c)(6)(A) or (7)(A), and thus the Immigration Judge lacked jurisdiction over petitioner's motion because petitioner had previously been removed from the U.S.
