Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. Appeal: 17-1142 Doc: 20 Filed: 09/06/2017 Pg: 2 of 2 PER CURIAM: Richard Maina Kihara, a native and citizen of Kenya, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (Board) denying his motion to reopen. We have reviewed the administrative record and Kihara’s claims, and conclude that the Board did not abuse its discretion in denying his motion. See 8 C.F.R. § 1003.2(a) (2017); Mosere v. Mukasey, 552 F.3d 397, 400 (4th Cir. 2009). Accordingly, we deny the petition for review for the reasons stated by the Board. See In re Kihara (B.I.A. Jan. 4, 2017). 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 2
