Harold PINEDA-AGUILAR, Petitioner, v. William P. BARR, Attorney General, Respondent.
Decided: November 12, 2019
Before NIEMEYER, MOTZ, and KEENAN, Circuit Judges.
Joseph A. Devamithran, LAW OFFICE OF JOSEPH A. DEVAMITHRAN, Annandale, Virginia, for Petitioner. Joseph H. Hunt, Assistant Attorney General, Margaret Kuehne Taylor, Senior Litigation Counsel, Rodolfo D. Saenz, Office of Immigration Litigation, Civil Division, UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Washington, D.C., for Respondent.
Harold Pineda-Aguilar, a native and citizen of Honduras, 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, withholding of removal, and protection under the Convention Against Torture. We have thoroughly reviewed the record, including the transcript of Pineda-Aguilar’s merits hearing and all supporting evidence. We 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, 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. In re Pineda-Aguilar, (B.I.A. Dec. 13, 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Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion.
Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
