Ni v. Holder, 09-1584

A Chinese citizen's petition for review of a BIA's denial of his application for withholding of removal is denied in part and dismissed in part where: 1) petitioner cannot establish a claim for withholding of removal based solely on his wife's forced abortion; 2) BIA did not err in denying the claim as petitioner has not presented any evidence so compelling that no reasonable factfinder could fail to find that he has shown past persecution or fear of future persecution in his own right; and 3) petitioner's claim that he is entitled to remand in order to present additional evidence is dismissed for lack of jurisdiction.
