Park v. Attorney General US, 16-1795

In a South Korean citizen's petition to reopen his removal proceedings so that he might apply for the waiver of inadmissibility, the petition is dismissed where the court has no jurisdiction to review petitions filed under 8 C.F.R. section 1003.2(a), commonly known as the 'sua sponte' reopening provision, because the Board of Immigration Appeals' (BIA) discretion in this area is so broad, that the court has no meaningful way to review it.
