Hugo Rolando CASTILLO, Petitioner, v. Matthew G. WHITAKER, Acting Attorney General, Respondent.
Decided: December 13, 2018
Before WILKINSON and HARRIS, Circuit Judges, and HAMILTON, Senior Circuit Judge.
Michael E. Ward, ALSTON & BIRD LLP, Washington, D.C., for Petitioner. Joseph H. Hunt, Assistant Attorney General, Rebekah Nahas, Trial Attorney, Karen L. Melnik, Trial Attorney, Office of Immigration Litigation, UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Washington, D.C., for Respondent.
Hugo Rolando Castillo, a native and citizen of Guatemala, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (Board) granting reconsideration, reinstating his appeal from the Immigration Judge’s denial of his requests for relief from removal and dismissing his appeal after consideration of his appellate brief. We have thoroughly reviewed the record and Castillo’s claims and conclude that the record evidence does not compel a ruling contrary to any of the agency’s factual findings, see 8 U.S.C. § 1252(b)(4)(B) (2012), and that substantial evidence supports the Board’s decision, 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 Castillo (B.I.A. Apr. 24, 2018). We 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Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion.
Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
