Case: 09-60614 Document: 00511095561 Page: 1 Date Filed: 04/29/2010 IN THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS United States Court of Appeals FOR THE FIFTH CIRCUIT Fifth Circuit FILED No. 09-60614 Summary Calendar April 29, 2010 Lyle W. Cayce Clerk CARLOS DAVID GONZALEZ-RUIZ, Petitioner v. ERIC H. HOLDER, JR., U. S. ATTORNEY GENERAL, Respondent Petition for Review of an Order of the Board of Immigration Appeals BIA No. A094 792 066 Before GARZA, CLEMENT, and OWEN, Circuit Judges. PER CURIAM:* Carlos David Gonzalez-Ruiz (Gonzalez) petitions this court for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) vacating the Immigration Judge's (IJ) grant of his application for discretionary relief in the form of cancellation of removal under 240A of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) and 8 U.S.C. 1229b(b)(1). Gonzalez asserts that the BIA erred in reversing the IJ's decision because the BIA failed to engage in a substantive review of the facts as the IJ had done.

To the extent that Gonzalez challenges the BIA's discretionary denial of relief, we lack jurisdiction to consider this contention. See 8 U.S.C. 1252(a)(2)(B); Delgado-Reynua v. Gonzales, 450 F.3d 596, 599-600 (5th Cir. 2006). Gonzalez attempts to circumvent this jurisdictional limitation by arguing that his claim concerning the BIA's method of analysis presents a legal question. This argument is unavailing. See Delgado-Reynua, 450 F.3d at 599-600; see also Sung v. Keisler, 505 F.3d 372, 377 (5th Cir. 2007) (holding that the court lacked jurisdiction over a claim that the agency failed to consider all relevant factors in denying cancellation of removal). DISMISSED for want of jurisdiction. Gonzalez's petition for review is thus 2
