IN THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FIFTH CIRCUIT United States Court of Appeals Fifth Circuit FILED No. 06-60843 Summary Calendar November 8, 2007 Charles R. Fulbruge III Clerk EMILIO RODRIGUEZ-HERNANDEZ Petitioner v. PETER D KEISLER, ACTING US ATTORNEY GENERAL Respondent Petition for Review of an Order of the Board of Immigration Appeals BIA No. A90 373 219 Before HIGGINBOTHAM, STEWART, and OWEN, Circuit Judges. PER CURIAM:* Emilio Rodriguez-Hernandez petitions this court for review of an order from the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) that affirmed the Immigration Judge's decision granting the respondent's motion to pretermit RodriguezHernandez's request for a waiver of removal pursuant to former 8 U.S.C. 1182(c) and ordering Rodriguez-Hernandez removed from the United States. Rodriguez-Hernandez contends that the BIA erred by determining that Pursuant to 5TH CIR. R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH CIR. R. 47.5.4. * No. 06-60843 he was ineligible for relief pursuant to 1182(c). The respondent moves for summary affirmance or, in the alternative, an extension of time to file a brief. Rodriguez-Hernandez has not shown error in connection with the BIA's determination that he had failed to establish his status as a lawful permanent resident of the United States. See INS v. Phinpathya, 464 U.S. 183, 188 n.6 (1984). He has concomitantly failed to carry his burden of showing that he is eligible for relief under former 1182(c). See Vo v. Gonzales, 482 F.3d 363, 36670 (5th Cir. 2007); see also Ashby v. INS, 961 F.2d 555, 557 (5th Cir. 1992). Rodriguez-Hernandez's petition for review is DENIED. The respondent's motion is likewise DENIED. 2
