United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.

Cynthia Yamileth ALVARADO-TORRES, Petitioner, v. William P. BARR, Attorney General, Respondent.

No. 18-2238

Decided: May 29, 2019

Before WILKINSON, AGEE, and HARRIS, Circuit Judges. Mark J. Devine, Charleston, South Carolina, for Petitioner. Joseph H. Hunt, Assistant Attorney General, Cindy S. Ferrier, Assistant Director, Joseph A. O’Connell, Office of Immigration Litigation, Civil Division, UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Washington, D.C., for Respondent.

Cynthia Yamileth Alvarado-Torres, a native and citizen of Honduras, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (Board) dismissing her appeal from the Immigration Judge’s denial of her requests for asylum and withholding of removal. We have thoroughly reviewed the record, including the transcript of Alavardo-Torres’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 Alvarado-Torres (B.I.A. Sept. 21, 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Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
