Holder, 645 F.3d 1098, 1099 (9th Cir. 2011), and we deny the petition for review. The agency properly concluded that Claro-Agustin was ineligible for cancellation of removal because he lacked seven years of continuous residence in the United States after being admitted in any status. See 8 U.S.C. § 1229b(a)(2); Vasquez de Alcantar, 645 F.3d at 1102-03 (an applicant for adjustment of status who entered without inspection is not admitted in any status until his application is approved).
