UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE NINTH CIRCUIT
January 21, 2011
YESSICA J. GALLARDO-SANCHEZ, PETITIONER,
ERIC H. HOLDER, JR., ATTORNEY GENERAL, RESPONDENT.
On Petition for Review of an Order of the Agency No. A096-647-777 Board of Immigration Appeals
NOT FOR PUBLICATION
MOLLY C. DWYER, CLERK U.S. COURT OF APPEALS
Submitted January 10, 2011*fn2
Before: BEEZER, TALLMAN, and CALLAHAN, Circuit Judges.
Yessica J. Gallardo-Sanchez, a native and citizen of Mexico, petitions for review of the Board of Immigration Appeals' ("BIA") order dismissing her appeal from an immigration judge's decision denying her application for cancellation of removal. We have jurisdiction under 8 U.S.C. § 1252, and we grant the petition for review and remand for further proceedings.
Because the BIA decided this case without the benefit of our decision in Mercado-Zazueta v. Holder, 580 F.3d 1102, 1113 (9th Cir. 2009) ("[F]or purposes of satisfying the five years of lawful permanent residence required under INA section 240A(a)(1), 8 U.S.C. § 1229b(a)(1), a parent's status as a lawful permanent resident is imputed to the unemancipated minor children residing with that parent."), we remand to the BIA to allow it to reconsider Gallardo-Sanchez's cancellation of removal application. See generally INS v. Ventura, 537 U.S. 12 (2002) (per curiam).
PETITION FOR REVIEW GRANTED; REMANDED.
