Jose Danis MACHADO-MARQUEZ, Petitioner, v. Jefferson B. SESSIONS III, Attorney General, Respondent.
Decided: September 10, 2018
Before KING, AGEE, and HARRIS, Circuit Judges.
Daniel Christmann, CHRISTMANNLEGAL, Charlotte, North Carolina, for Petitioner. Chad A. Readler, Acting Assistant Attorney General, John S. Hogan, Assistant Director, Andrea N. Gevas, Civil Division, Office of Immigration Litigation, UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Washington, D.C., for Respondent.
Jose Danis Machado-Marquez, a native and citizen of El Salvador, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (Board) dismissing his appeal from the Immigration Judge’s denial of his requests for asylum and withholding of removal. We have thoroughly reviewed the record, including the transcript of Machado-Marquez’s merits hearing and all supporting evidence. We conclude that the record evidence does not compel a ruling contrary to any of the administrative agency’s factual findings, see 8 U.S.C. § 1252(b)(4)(B) (2012), and that substantial evidence supports the Board’s decision, see INS v. Elias-Zacarias, 502 U.S. 478, 481, 112 S.Ct. 812, 117 L.Ed.2d 38 (1992).
Accordingly, we deny the petition for review for the reasons stated by the Board. See In re Machado-Marquez (B.I.A. Dec. 15, 2017). We deny Machado-Marquez’s motion to hold case in abeyance and dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion.
Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
