Lino v. Gonzales, 05-1078
Petition for review of reinstatement of removal order and the denial of adjustment of status application is denied where section 241(a)(5) of the INA plainly precludes a previously removed alien who has since illegally reentered the U.S. from adjusting her status under section 245(i), and petitioner does not fall within any Congressionally recognized exemption from section 241(a)(5).
