Pg: 2 of 2
Guo Yong Yang, a native and citizen of the People’s Republic of China, petitions
for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (Board) dismissing his appeal
from the immigration judge’s decision denying his requests for asylum, withholding of
removal, and protection under the Convention Against Torture. We have thoroughly
reviewed the record, including the various documentary exhibits, the transcript of Yang’s
merits hearings, and his supporting evidence. We conclude that the record evidence does
not compel a ruling contrary to any of the agency’s 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.
See In re Yang (B.I.A. Oct. 6, 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.
