By FindLaw Staff on October 01, 2009 6:00 PM

In a petition for review of the BIA's denial of petitioner's motion to reconsider its rejection of petitioner's appeal as being untimely filed, the petition is denied where 8 C.F.R. section 1003.38(b) is ambiguous regarding the BIA's jurisdiction to consider late filings, and the BIA's interpretation barring petitioner's filing was not plainly erroneous or inconsistent with the language of the regulation.
