United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.

Santos E. LOPEZ PEREZ, Petitioner, v. Jeffrey A. ROSEN, Acting Attorney General, Respondent.

No. 20-1532

Decided: January 21, 2021

Before MOTZ, FLOYD, and QUATTLEBAUM, Circuit Judges. Santos E. Lopez Perez, Petitioner Pro Se. Vanessa M. Otero, UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Washington, D.C., for Respondent.

Santos E. Lopez Perez, a native and citizen of Nicaragua, 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 Lopez Perez's merits hearing and all supporting evidence. We conclude that the record evidence does not compel a ruling contrary to any of the administrative factual findings, see 8 U.S.C. § 1252(b)(4)(B), and that substantial evidence supports the denial of relief in this case, 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 Lopez Perez (B.I.A. Apr. 13, 2020). 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Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
