Appeal: 16-2058 Doc: 24 Filed: 06/14/2017 Pg: 2 of 2 PER CURIAM: Stella Engwarli Teku, a native and citizen of Cameroon, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (Board) denying her motion to reopen. We have reviewed the administrative record and Teku’s claims, and conclude that the Board did not abuse its discretion in denying her motion. See 8 C.F.R. § 1003.2(a) (2016); Mosere v. Mukasey, 552 F.3d 397, 400 (4th Cir. 2009). * We further find Teku’s due process claim to be without merit. Accordingly, we deny the petition for review for the reasons stated by the Board. See In re Teku (B.I.A. Aug. 18, 2016). 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 * To the extent Teku seeks to challenge the Board’s decision declining to reopen her proceedings sua sponte, we lack jurisdiction to review that aspect of its decision. Mosere, 552 F.3d at 400-01. 2
