Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.


Mona Mohammed Abdu, a native and citizen of Ethiopia, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (Board) denying as untimely and numerically barred her motion to reopen immigration proceedings. We have reviewed the record and the Board’s order and find that the Board did not abuse its discretion in denying the motion to reopen. See Barry v. Gonzales, 445 F.3d 741, 744 (4th Cir. 2006). Further, we lack jurisdiction to review the Board’s refusal to invoke its sua sponte authority to reopen proceedings. See Zhao Quan Chen v. Gonzales, 492 F.3d 153, 155 (2d Cir. 2007). Accordingly, we deny in part and dismiss in part the petition for review. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
