Restrepo v. Holder, 08-4029

A Colombian national's petition for review of a decision denying his application for asylum and related relief is denied where: 1) BIA's denial of application for asylum is unreviewable for lack of jurisdiction under 8 U.S.C. section 1158(a)(3); 2) the BIA did not err in concluding that petitioner had failed to make the necessary showing required for withholding of removal; and 3) because Convention Against Torture has a higher standard than withholding of removal, relief for petitioner on this claim is foreclosed as well.
