United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit

November 29, 2017

GUSTAVO GABRIEL NARDEA, Petitioner,
v.
JEFFERSON B. SESSIONS III, Attorney General, Respondent.

          Argued: September 13, 2017

         On Petition for Review of an Order of the Department of Homeland Security.

         ARGUED:

          Adam Nathaniel Crandell, LAW OFFICE OF ADAM N. CRANDELL LLC, Baltimore, Maryland, for Petitioner.

          David Schor, UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Washington, D.C., for Respondent.

         ON BRIEF:

          Benjamin C. Mizer, Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General, Jeffery R. Leist, Senior Litigation Counsel, Office of Immigration Litigation, Civil Division, UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Washington, D.C., for Respondent.

          Before TRAXLER, DIAZ, and FLOYD, Circuit Judges.

          DIAZ, CIRCUIT JUDGE.

         Gustavo Gabriel Nardea, a citizen of Argentina, petitions for review of a February 26, 2016 Order of Removal issued by the Department of Homeland Security (the "DHS"). Nardea was removed without the benefit of a hearing on the basis that he entered the United States under the Visa Waiver Program and waived his right to contest removal under the terms of that program. Nardea challenges his status as a visa waiver entrant and, in the alternative, the constitutionality of any waiver under the program. We reject both challenges and therefore deny the petition.

The record of his entry includes a passport stamp for visa waiver tourists and the completed bottom half of an I-94W Visa Waiver Arrival Form, [1] bearing Nardea's name, birthdate, and country of citizenship. Nardea has remained in the United States since 2001 and does not dispute that he is currently in the country illegally. On February 26, 2016, DHS discovered Nardea in Montgomery County, Maryland and issued a notice of intent to deport. The notice asserted that Nardea had entered the United States under the Visa Waiver Program, exceeded the length of his permitted stay, and waived any right to contest his deportability by executing the I-94W Form. An order of deportation was issued the same day. Nardea timely filed a petition for review.

         II.

         We review final orders of removal based on the administrative record considered by the agency and construe findings of fact as "conclusive unless any reasonable adjudicator would be compelled to conclude to the contrary . . . ." 8 U.S.C. § 1252(b)(4)(A)-(B). Questions of law, including ...
