United States Court of Appeals, Eighth Circuit.

Gustavo Lizardo Mendoza, also known as Gustavo Adan Lizardo Mendoza; Pedro Lizardo Mendoza, also known as Pedro Josue Lizardo Mendoza Petitioners v. Loretta E. Lynch, Attorney General of the United States Respondent

No. 16-1079

    Decided: January 03, 2017

Before SMITH, BOWMAN, and BENTON, Circuit Judges.

Honduran citizens and siblings Gustavo and Pedro Lizardo Mendoza petition for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals upholding an immigration judge's (IJ's) denial of their applications for asylum and withholding of removal.1 After careful consideration, we conclude that substantial evidence supports the decision. See Garcia-Milian v. Lynch, 825 F.3d 943, 945 (8th Cir. 2016). The petition for review is denied. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.

FOOTNOTES

1.  β€ƒThe IJ also denied protection under the Convention Against Torture, but that ruling is not before this court. See Chay-Velasquez v. Ashcroft, 367 F.3d 751, 756 (8th Cir. 2004).

PER CURIAM.
