Pg: 2 of 2
Sagar Sapkota, a native and citizen of Nepal, 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 and withholding of removal.
thoroughly reviewed the record, including the transcript of Sapkota’s merits hearing and
all 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, 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 Sapkota (B.I.A. Nov. 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.
