Appeal: 16-2172 Doc: 24 Filed: 04/12/2017 Pg: 2 of 2 PER CURIAM: Walter Trujillo-Portillo, a native and citizen of Guatemala and a citizen of Mexico, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (Board) dismissing his appeal from the immigration judge’s decision denying his motion for a continuance and finding that he abandoned his application for cancellation of removal. After reviewing the record and the transcript of the proceedings, we conclude that the Board did not abuse its discretion in dismissing Trujillo-Portillo’s appeal. See Lendo v. Gonzales, 493 F.3d 439, 441 (4th Cir. 2007) (stating that denial of continuance is reviewed for abuse of discretion). Accordingly, we deny the petition for review. 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. PETITION DENIED 2
