WEI LIN, Petitioner, v. Robert M. WILKINSON, Acting Attorney General, Respondent.
Wei Lin, a native and citizen of China, petitions pro se for review of the Board of Immigration Appeals’ order dismissing his appeal from an immigration judge's decision denying his application for deferral of removal under the Convention Against Torture (“CAT”). We have jurisdiction under 8 U.S.C. § 1252. We review for substantial evidence the agency's factual findings. Garcia-Milian v. Holder, 755 F.3d 1026, 1031 (9th Cir. 2014). We deny the petition for review.
Substantial evidence supports the agency's denial of Lin's CAT claim because he did not establish that it is more likely than not he would be tortured by or with the consent or acquiescence of the government if returned to China. See Zheng v. Holder, 644 F.3d 829, 835-36 (9th Cir. 2011) (claims of possible torture were speculative); Go v. Holder, 640 F.3d 1047, 1054 (9th Cir. 2011) (country reports and credible testimony were insufficient to compel conclusion that petitioner was more likely than not to be tortured).
The temporary stay of removal remains in place until issuance of the mandate. The motion for a stay of removal (Docket Entry No. 1) is otherwise denied.
PETITION FOR REVIEW DENIED.
