Pg: 2 of 2
Kayi Goudeagbe, a native and citizen of Togo, petitions for review of an order of
the Board of Immigration Appeals (Board) denying her motion to reopen. Goudeagbe’s
motion was untimely filed, and the Board declined to exercise its sua sponte authority to
reopen her proceedings.
We lack jurisdiction to review how the Board exercises its sua sponte discretion.
See Lawrence v. Lynch, 826 F.3d 198, 206-07 (4th Cir. 2016); Mosere v. Mukasey, 552
F.3d 397, 400-01 (4th Cir. 2009). 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
