MEMORANDUM

This disposition is not appropriate for publication and is not precedent except as provided by 9th Cir. R. 36-3.

Igor Sedrakyan, a native and citizen of Russia, petitions for review of the Board of Immigration Appeals' ("BIA") order denying his motion to reopen. Our jurisdiction is governed by 8 U.S.C. § 1252. We dismiss the petition for review.

With respect to Sedrakyan's asylum claim, we lack jurisdiction to review the BIA's denial of his motion to reopen because he was removable for having committed an aggravated felony. See 8 U.S.C. §§ 1252(a)(2)(C), 1227(a)(2)(A)(iii).

With respect to Sedrakyan's withholding of removal and CAT claims, we lack jurisdiction because he failed to exhaust them before the BIA. See Barron v. Ashcroft, 358 F.3d 674, 678 (9th Cir. 2004).

PETITION FOR REVIEW DISMISSED.
