Hogan, OFFICE OF IMMIGRATION LITIGATION, Washington, D.C., for Respondent. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Ayad Ramzi Geris, * a native and citizen of Egypt, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals affirming the Immigration Judge's denial of his applications for relief from removal. Geris challenges the determination that he failed to establish eligibility denying for asylum. To for obtain reversal an alien of a determination eligibility relief, "must show that the evidence he presented was so compelling that no reasonable factfinder could fail to find the requisite fear of persecution." (1992). INS v. Elias-Zacarias, 502 U.S. 478, 483-84 We have reviewed the evidence of record and conclude that Geris fails to show that the evidence compels a contrary result. Having failed to qualify for asylum, Geris cannot meet Chen v. the more stringent standard for withholding of removal. INS, 195 F.3d 198, 205 (4th Cir. 1999); INS v. Cardoza-Fonseca, 480 U.S. 421, 430 (1987). Accordingly, dispense with oral we deny the petition the for facts review. and We legal argument because Geris's wife, Faten Moussa Moussa, and his children, George Ayad Geris, Tony Ayad Geris, and Amira Ayad Geris, are derivative applicants of Geris's claim for asylum. * 2 contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
