JOHN ASHCROFT, Attorney General; TOM RIDGE, Secretary, Dept. of Homeland Security; BUREAU OF CUSTOM & IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT,
By statute, we have jurisdiction to review final orders of removal, with some limitations. See 8 U.S.C. § 1252(a). By its very terms, however, the Notice that was issued to petitioner on September 19 is not a final order of removal. We, therefore, have no jurisdiction to review it. Likewise, there is no basis for our granting petitioner a stay of removal in the absence of a final order of removal.
Accordingly, the petition for review is DISMISSED for lack of jurisdiction and the motion for stay of removal is DENIED.
ENTERED FOR THE COURT
*. This order and judgment is not binding precedent, except under the doctrines of law of the case, res judicata, and collateral estoppel. The court generally disfavors the citation of orders and judgments; nevertheless, an order and judgment may be cited under the terms and conditions of 10th Cir. R. 36.3.
