Case: 14-60478 Document: 00513060968 Page: 1 Date Filed: 06/01/2015 IN THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FIFTH CIRCUIT No. 14-60478 Summary Calendar United States Court of Appeals Fifth Circuit FILED June 1, 2015 HILDA NDIP ASHU TABOT, Petitioner Lyle W. Cayce Clerk v. LORETTA LYNCH, U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL, Respondent Petition for Review of an Order of the Board of Immigration Appeals BIA No. A201 264 929 Before SMITH, WIENER, and ELROD, Circuit Judges. PER CURIAM: * Hilda Ndip Ashu Tabot, a native and citizen of Cameroon, petitions for review of the Board of Immigration Appeals’ (BIA) decision denying her motion to reopen. Tabot challenges the Immigration Judge’s (IJ) denial of her applications for asylum, withholding of removal, and protection under the Convention Against Torture based on the IJ’s adverse credibility finding and the BIA’s affirmance of that finding. 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 R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH CIR.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: 14-60478 Document: 00513060968 Page: 2 Date Filed: 06/01/2015 No. 14-60478 Tabot has briefed only her challenge to the IJ’s decision and the BIA’s December 18, 2013, affirmance of that decision. Because, however, Tabot did not file a petition for review from the BIA’s December 18, 2013, decision, that decision is not before the court. See Stone v. INS, 514 U.S. 386, 394, 401-06 (1995); 8 U.S.C. § 1252(b)(1); Navarro-Miranda v. Ashcroft, 330 F.3d 672, 676 (5th Cir. 2003). Moreover, Tabot has abandoned any challenge to the BIA’s denial of her motion to reopen by failing to brief the issue sufficiently. See FED. R. APP. P. 28(a)(8)(A); Soadjede v. Ashcroft, 324 F.3d 830, 833 (5th Cir. 2003). Accordingly, Tabot has waived her claim for relief. See Soadjede, 324 F.3d at 833. Tabot’s petition for review is DENIED. 2
