Case: 15-60096 Document: 00513575283 Page: 1 Date Filed: 06/30/2016 IN THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FIFTH CIRCUIT United States Court of Appeals Fifth Circuit No. 15-60096 Summary Calendar FILED June 30, 2016 Lyle W. Cayce Clerk FRANCISCO M. JACOBO RIOS, also known as Francisco Miguel Jacobo, Petitioner v. LORETTA LYNCH, U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL, Respondent Petition for Review of an Order of the Board of Immigration Appeals BIA No. A099 101 953 Before BARKSDALE, ELROD, and COSTA, Circuit Judges. PER CURIAM: * Francisco M. Jacobo Rios petitions for review of the Board of Immigration Appeals’ denial of his motion to terminate removal proceedings, in which he claimed derivative citizenship under former Immigration and Nationality Act § 321(a), 8 U.S.C. § 1432(a). Under § 1432(a), Jacobo Rios asserts he derived citizenship because his mother, who had sole custody of him, filed an I-130 petition on his behalf and naturalized while he was under 18 Pursuant to 5th Cir. R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5th Cir. R. 47.5.4.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: 15-60096 Document: 00513575283 Page: 2 Date Filed: 06/30/2016 No. 15-60096 years old. Because he has not shown that he can demonstrate he was lawfully present in the United States or that he took steps to become lawful before he turned 18, his claim for derivative citizenship is foreclosed by Gonzalez v. Holder, 771 F.3d 238, 240–45 (5th Cir. 2014). DENIED. 2
