IMMIGRATION & NATURALIZATION SERVICE,
A76 264 233)
This matter comes before the court on petitioners Alba Elena Santiesteban-Olivas and Juan Manuel Valenzuela-Castro's petition for review and request for stay pending review. Petitioners seek review of the April 3, 2002 order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) dismissing their appeal of the immigration judge's February 4, 1998 decision denying their application for suspension of deportation. The immigration judge concluded that petitioners failed to established that their removal would cause extreme hardship to them or their children.
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 persons seeking suspension of a deportation order have 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 petitioners' motion to stay is DENIED as moot. The respondent's motion to stay deadline for filing of certified administrative record is similarly DENIED as moot.
