Valadez-Munoz v. Holder, 06-72510

In a petition for review of the Board of Immigration Appeals' (BIA) dismissal of petitioner's appeal from the Immigration Judge's (IJ) order of removal, the petition is denied where: 1) the BIA did not improperly determine that petitioner had "falsely represented himself . . . to be a citizen of the United States" under 8 U.S.C. section 1182(a)(6)(C)(ii)(I); and 2) the BIA did not err when it determined that petitioner could not take advantage of the timely recantation doctrine.
