Case: 11-60538 Document: 00511941441 Page: 1 Date Filed: 08/01/2012 IN THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS United States Court of Appeals FOR THE FIFTH CIRCUIT Fifth Circuit FILED No. 11-60538 Summary Calendar August 1, 2012 Lyle W. Cayce Clerk AZMI HAKIM, 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. A040 175 173 Before WIENER, ELROD, and GRAVES, Circuit Judges. PER CURIAM:* We previously remanded this case so that the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) could consider whether Azmi Hakim had shown that the government of Israel would be “willfully blind” to his alleged torture by Muslims, as required for relief under the Convention Against Torture. Hakim v. Holder, 628 F.3d 151, 155-57 (5th Cir. 2011) (Hakim I). On remand, the BIA concluded that Hakim had not shown willful blindness. Hakim has filed a petition for review. * 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 R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH CIR.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. Case: 11-60538 Document: 00511941441 Page: 2 Date Filed: 08/01/2012 No. 11-60538 As Hakim is removable for having committed an aggravated felony, we have jurisdiction only to determine whether the BIA applied the proper legal standard or to consider other legal or constitutional issues. See Hakim I, 628 F.3d at 154-55. Although Hakim purports to challenge the BIA’s standard of review, he is merely attempting to couch in legal terms his factual contentions that he adequately established the requisite likelihood of torture. The BIA applied the correct legal standard, and Hakim fails to identify any other legal or constitutional issue over which we have jurisdiction. The petition for review is DENIED. 2
