Appeal: 17-1121 Doc: 26 Filed: 09/13/2017 Pg: 2 of 2 PER CURIAM: Marto Fahardo, a native and citizen of Guatemala, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals dismissing his appeal from the immigration judge’s denial of his requests for asylum, withholding of removal, and protection under the Convention Against Torture. * We have reviewed the record, including the transcript of Fahardo’s merits hearing and all supporting evidence. We conclude that the record evidence does not compel a ruling contrary to any of the administrative 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 Fahardo (B.I.A. Dec. 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. PETITION DENIED * The Board issued this order after this court granted the Attorney General’s unopposed motion to remand Fahardo’s case to the Board for further consideration. 2
