Appeal: 16-2304 Doc: 25 Filed: 06/22/2017 Pg: 2 of 2 PER CURIAM: Levi Rivera Martinez, a native and 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 to reopen and rescind his in absentia removal order. We have reviewed the administrative record and the Board’s order and find no abuse of discretion. See 8 C.F.R. § 1003.23(b) (2016). We therefore deny the petition for review for the reasons stated by the Board. See In re Rivera Martinez (B.I.A. Oct. 17, 2016). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the court and argument would not aid the decisional process. PETITION DENIED 2
