Pg: 2 of 2
Alejandro Macedo Fructuso (Macedo), a native and citizen of Mexico, petitions for
review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (Board) dismissing his appeal
from the immigration judge’s denial of his application for cancellation of removal. Macedo
raises a due process violation for the first time on appeal, arguing that the immigration
judge’s conduct at his removal hearing violated his right to a full and fair hearing. We lack
jurisdiction over this claim because Macedo failed to exhaust his administrative remedies
before the Board. * 8 U.S.C. § 1252(d)(1) (2012); Massis v. Mukasey, 549 F.3d 631, 638
(4th Cir. 2008). We therefore dismiss the petition for review. 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.
Although Macedo notes that there is an exception to the exhaustion requirement
for certain constitutional claims, see Farrokhi v. I.N.S., 900 F.2d 697, 700-01 (4th Cir.
1990); Gallanosa v. United States, 785 F.2d 116, 120-21 (4th Cir. 1986), we have never
extended this exception to “procedural challenges that could have been addressed by the
[Board].” Kurfees v. I.N.S., 275 F.3d 332, 337 (4th Cir. 2001).
