United States Court of Appeals, Eighth Circuit.

Simon Velasquez Cansinos, Petitioner, v. Loretta E. Lynch, Attorney General of the United States, Respondent.

No. 15-3669

    Decided: October 05, 2016

Before COLLOTON, BOWMAN, and GRUENDER, Circuit Judges.

Guatemalan citizen Simon Velasquez-Cansinos petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals upholding an immigration judge's denial of his application for withholding of removal. After careful consideration, we conclude that substantial evidence in the record as a whole supports the agency's determination that Velasquez-Cansinos failed to establish a clear probability of persecution in Guatemala due to a protected ground. See Ezeagwu v. Mukasey, 537 F.3d 836, 839 (8th Cir. 2008). Accordingly, we deny the petition for review. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.

PER CURIAM.
