Plaintiffs Abass and Isatu Bangura appeal an order of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio dismissing their complaint against Defendants Mark Hansen, the District Director of the Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services, Deportation Officer Todd Smith, and then-Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Thomas Ridge for failure to exhaust administrative remedies and failure to state a claim. Plaintiffs allege that Defendants denial of Plaintiff Abass Banguras spousal immigration petition, as well as Defendants denial of Don Chisleys spousal immigration petition made on behalf of Plaintiff Isatu Bangura, violate the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment and were contrary to the Immigration and Nationality Act ("INA"), 8 U.S.C. Â§ 1101, et seq., in violation of the Administrative Procedure Act ("APA"), 5 U.S.C. Â§ 706. For the reasons set forth below, we AFFIRM the district courts dismissal of Plaintiffs claims.
