Pg: 2 of 2
Mauricio Ernesto Hernandez-Mancilla, a native and citizen of El Salvador, 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 Hernandez-Mancilla’s merits hearing before the
immigration court 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) (2012), and that substantial evidence supports the Board’s decision. See
INS v. Elias–Zacarias, 502 U.S. 478, 481 (1992).
Accordingly, we deny the petition for review for the reasons stated by the Board.
In re Hernandez-Mancilla (B.I.A. Aug. 9, 2016). 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.
