HARDING v. BARR (2019)

United States Court of Appeals, Eighth Circuit.

Patrick HARDING Petitioner v. William P. BARR, Attorney General of the United States Respondent

No. 18-3181

Decided: October 16, 2019

Before GRUENDER, BENTON, and STRAS, Circuit Judges. Patrick Harding, Pro Se Matthew Lorn Hoppock, Hoppock Law Firm, LLC, Overland Park, KS, for Petitioner Elizabeth Robyn Chapman, Trial Attorney, Jennifer R. Khouri, Carl H. McIntyre, U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Division, Office of Immigration Litigation, Washington, DC, Peter B. Berg, U.S. Immigration & Naturalization Service, Bloomington, MN, for Respondent


Patrick Harding, a citizen of Trinidad and Tobago, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), which rejected his assertion that the agency lacked jurisdiction to order him removed.1 Having jurisdiction under 8 U.S.C. § 1252(a)(2)(D), this court denies the petition because Harding’s challenge to the agency’s jurisdiction over his removal proceedings is foreclosed by this court’s precedent. See Ali v. Barr, 924 F.3d 983, 986 (8th Cir. 2019).

The petition is denied. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.


1.   The immigration judge’s decision and the remainder of the BIA’s order are not before this panel. See Chay-Velasquez v. Ashcroft, 367 F.3d 751, 756 (8th Cir. 2004) (claim not raised in opening brief is waived).
