Agency No. A094-801-638 On Petition for Review of an Order of the 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NOT FOR PUBLICATION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.
Maria Elena Rivas-Guzman, a native and citizen of El Salvador, petitions for review of the Board of Immigration Appeals' order dismissing her appeal from an immigration judge's ("IJ") removal order. We have jurisdiction under 8 U.S.C. § 1252. We review for abuse of discretion the denial of a continuance, Sandoval-Luna v. Mukasey, 526 F.3d 1243, 1246 (9th Cir. 2008) (per curiam), and review de novo claimed violations of the right to counsel, Hernandez-Gil v. Gonzales, 476 F.3d 803, 804 n. 1 (9th Cir. 2007). We deny the petition for review.
Rivas-Guzman's contention that the IJ abused her discretion by refusing to continue her immigration proceedings fails because she did not establish good cause for a continuance. See 8 C.F.R. § 1003.29. Rivas-Guzman's contention that the denial of the continuance effectively deprived her of her right to counsel is unavailing. See Lata v. INS, 204 F.3d 1241, 1246 (9th Cir. 2000) (requiring error for a due process violation).
PETITION FOR REVIEW DENIED.
