IN THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS United States Court of Appeals FOR THE FIFTH CIRCUIT Fifth Circuit FILED No. 09-40510 Conference Calendar October 20, 2009 Charles R. Fulbruge III Clerk UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff-Appellee v. HECTOR FELIX GARZA-GONZALEZ, Defendant-Appellant Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas USDC No. 7:09-CR-22-1 Before WIENER, BENAVIDES, and STEWART, Circuit Judges. PER CURIAM:* Appealing the judgment in a criminal case, Hector Felix Garza-Gonzalez presents arguments that he concedes are foreclosed by United States v. CepedaRios, 530 F.3d 333, 335-36 (5th Cir. 2008), which held that even after Lopez v. Gonzales, 549 U.S. 47 (2006), a second state conviction for simple possession of a controlled substance qualifies as an aggravated felony that supports the imposition of an eight-level enhancement under U.S.S.G. 2L1.2(b)(1)(C). The Government's motion for summary affirmance is GRANTED, and the judgment of the district court is AFFIRMED. 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 R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH CIR .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. *
