|NELSON LASH AKINMULERO,
IMMIGRATION & NATURALIZATION SERVICE,
This matter comes before the court on petitioner Nelson Lash Akinmulero's petition for review and request for stay pending review. Mr. Akinmulero seeks review of the April 17, 2002 order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) dismissing his appeal of the immigration judge's July 1, 1999 decision finding him removable and denying his application for cancellation of removal. The BIA concluded that Mr. Akinmulero had not established that his removal would cause exceptional and extremely unusual hardship to his daughter.
Having reviewed the materials presented to us, we conclude that this court does not have jurisdiction over this matter. A determination by the BIA that one seeking suspension of a deportation order has not shown "extreme hardship" is a discretionary decision that this court may not review. 8 U.S.C. § 1252(a)(2)(B)(ii); Escalera v. INS, 222 F.3d 753, 755 (10th Cir. 2000). Accordingly, the petition for review is DISMISSED, and the motion to stay is DENIED as moot.
