Pg: 2 of 2
Marvin Estuardo Lopez-Mendoza, a native and citizen of Guatemala, petitions for
review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals affirming without opinion the
Immigration Judge’s denial of Lopez-Mendoza’s requests for asylum, withholding of
removal, and protection under the Convention Against Torture. We have thoroughly
reviewed the record, including the transcript of Lopez-Mendoza’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 agency’s decision, INS v. Elias-Zacarias, 502 U.S.
478, 481 (1992).
Accordingly, we deny the petition for review. See In re Lopez-Mendoza (B.I.A.
Nov. 29, 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.
