Reset A A Font size: Print

United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.

Jonas Okwuchukwu OKWARA, Petitioner, v. William P. BARR, Attorney General, Respondent.

No. 19-1301

Decided: March 24, 2020

Before AGEE and HARRIS, Circuit Judges, and SHEDD, Senior Circuit Judge. Mariam Masumi Daud, JOHNSON & MASUMI, P.C., Vienna, Virginia, for Petitioner. Joseph H. Hunt, Assistant Attorney General, Leslie McKay, Senior Litigation Counsel, Shahrzad Baghai, Office of Immigration Litigation, Civil Division, UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Washington, D.C., for Respondent.

Jonas Okwuchukwu Okwara, a native and citizen of Nigeria, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (Board) denying his motion to reconsider. We have reviewed the administrative record and Okwara’s claims and conclude that the Board did not abuse its discretion in denying the motion. See 8 C.F.R. § 1003.2(a), (b)(1) (2019); Narine v. Holder, 559 F.3d 246, 249 (4th Cir. 2009); Jean v. Gonzales, 435 F.3d 475, 481, 483 (4th Cir. 2006). Accordingly, we deny the petition for review for the reasons stated by the Board. See In re Okwara (B.I.A. Feb. 21, 2019). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process.



Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
