On Petition for Review of an Order of the Board of Immigration Appeals. (A96-081-822; A96-081-823; A96-081-824) Submitted: December 20, 2006 Decided: January 9, 2007 Before NIEMEYER, WILLIAMS, and GREGORY, Circuit Judges. Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion. Oti W. Nwosu, THE LAW OFFICE OF OTI W. NWOSU, Arlington, Virginia, for Petitioner. Peter D. Keisler, Assistant Attorney General, James A. Hunolt, Senior Litigation Counsel, Craig Y. Lee, Office of Immigration Litigation, UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Washington, D.C., for Respondent. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Ayaba Mana Messan, a native and citizen of Togo, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals ("Board") denying her motion to reconsider its prior order, which adopted and affirmed 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, 491 (4th Cir. 2006). Accordingly, we deny the petition for review for the See In re: Messan, No. A96-081-822 reasons stated by the Board. (B.I.A. Apr. 27, 2006). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal before contentions the court are and adequately argument presented not in aid the the materials would decisional process. PETITION DENIED - 2 -
