De la Paz v. Holder, 09-3229

A Mexican citizen's petition for review of a reinstatement order by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is denied where: 1) the petition is timely as it was filed 16 days after first obtaining the order; 2) petitioner's sufficiency challenge is rejected as the 1996 document was an actual order and thus should be treated as the prior order of removal; 3) petitioner's claim that the procedures employed to reinstate her exclusion order violated due process fails; and 4) petitioner's challenge to her underlying 1996 removal order is rejected for lack of jurisdiction.
