OPINION[*]

PER CURIAM

Juan Ramires Fernandez Fernandez, a native and citizen of the Dominican Republic, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals ("BIA"). We will dismiss the petition in part and deny it in part.

Fernandez attempted to enter the United States in December 2000, but was removed using expedited removal procedures under § 235(b)(1) of the Immigration and Nationality Act ("INA") [8 U.S.C. § 1225(b)(1)], because he did not have proper documents (the biographical page in the passport he was using did not appear to be genuine). The "Notice to Alien Ordered Removed" provided that Fernandez was prohibited from entering the United States for five years. A.R. 501. In November 2002, he was admitted to the United States as an immigrant spouse of a lawful permanent resident, having noted on his visa application that he had never been refused admission to the United States at a port of entry. A.R. 498.

Fernandez appeared for a naturalization interview in April 2009.

After amendment, the final charges asserted that he was removable pursuant to: (1) INA § 237(a)(1)(A) [8 U.S.C. § 1227(a)(1)(A)] and INA § 212(a)(9)(A)(i) [8 U.S.C. § 1182(a)(9)(A)(i)]; i.e., that he was inadmissible because he was seeking admission within five years of his previous removal without prior consent of the Attorney General; and (2) INA § 237(a)(1)(A) [8 U.S.C. § 1227(a)(1)(A)] and INA 212(a)(6)(C)(i) [8 U.S.C. § 1182(a)(6)(C)(i)]; i.e., that he was inadmissible because he sought to procure, or had procured, a visa or other immigration benefit by fraud or by...
