Appeal: 17-1016 Doc: 22 Filed: 08/04/2017 Pg: 2 of 2 PER CURIAM: Julio Guardado Flores, a native and citizen of El Salvador, 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 adjustment of status. Because the agency denied relief in the exercise of its discretion, we lack jurisdiction over the petition for review pursuant to 8 U.S.C. § 1252(a)(2)(B)(i) (2012). * Accordingly, we 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. PETITION DISMISSED * We conclude that Guardado Flores fails to raise a colorable constitutional claim or question of law that would fall within the exception set forth in 8 U.S.C. § 1252(a)(2)(D) (2012). 2
