UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 06-1092 MULU TEKALIGNE FAJI, Petitioner, versus ALBERTO R. GONZALES, Attorney General, Respondent. On Petition for Review of an Order of the Board of Immigration Appeals. (A96-097-977) Submitted: September 27, 2006 Decided: October 13, 2006 Before WILLIAMS and MOTZ, Circuit Judges, and HAMILTON, Senior Circuit Judge. Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion. Thomas Hailu, Arlington, Virginia, for Petitioner. Rod J. Rosenstein, United States Attorney, John W. Sippel, Jr., Assistant United States Attorney, Baltimore, Maryland, for Respondent. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. See Local Rule 36(c). PER CURIAM: Mulu Tekaligne Faji, a native and citizen of Ethiopia, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals ("Board") denying a motion to reconsider a prior order, which denied a motion to reopen an order affirming the immigration judge's denial of her requests for asylum, withholding of removal, and protection under the Convention Against Torture. We have reviewed the record and the Board's order and find that the Board did not abuse its discretion in denying the motion to reconsider. See 8 C.F.R. 1003.2(a) (2006); Jean v. Gonzales, 435 F.3d 475, 481 (4th Cir. 2006). Accordingly, we deny the petition for review See In re Faji, No. A96-097- for the reasons stated by the Board. 977 (B.I.A. Dec. 23, 2005). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the court and argument would not aid the decisional process. PETITION DENIED - 2 -
