Cayce Clerk LUIS FERNANDO ESCOBAR-BARRIENTOS, also known as Luis Arturo Gomez-Garcia, Petitioner v. WILLIAM P. BARR, U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL, Respondent Petition for Review of an Order of the Board of Immigration Appeals BIA No. A094 805 582 Before STEWART, HIGGINSON, and COSTA, Circuit Judges. PER CURIAM: * Luis Fernando Escobar-Barrientos, a native and citizen of Colombia, petitions for review of the order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) declining to exercise its sua sponte authority to reopen his 2009 removal proceedings. It is well settled that we have no jurisdiction to review the BIA’s wholly discretionary exercise of its sua sponte authority to reopen removal 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 R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH CIR.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: 19-60047 Document: 00515239969 Page: 2 Date Filed: 12/17/2019 No. 19-60047 hearings. See Gonzalez-Cantu v. Sessions, 866 F.3d 302, 306 (5th Cir. 2017); Lopez-Dubon v.
