Lyle W. Cayce
DANA BOENTE, ACTING U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL,
Petition for Review of an Order of the
Board of Immigration Appeals
BIA No. A205 845 443
Before JONES, WIENER, and CLEMENT, Circuit Judges.
PER CURIAM: *
Petitioner Danny Perdomo-Cruz, a native and citizen of Honduras, seeks
review of the decision of the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) that
dismissed his appeal from the IJ’s denial of his application for withholding of
removal and protection under the Convention Against Torture (CAT). With
respect to his claim for withholding of removal, Cruz-Perdomo principally
asserts that the BIA’s determination that religion was not “one central reason”
Pursuant to 5TH CIR. R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not
be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH
CIR. R. 47.5.4.

for his persecution is not supported by substantial evidence.
Even if we
construe some of the record evidence as supporting Cruz-Perdomo’s claim, he
fails to show that “any reasonable adjudicator would be compelled” to conclude
that he is eligible for withholding of removal. 8 U.S.C. § 1252(b)(4)(B); see
Shaikh v. Holder, 588 F.3d 861, 863 (5th Cir. 2009); Zhang v. Gonzales, 432
F.3d 339, 344 (5th Cir. 2005).
Cruz-Perdomo also challenges the denial of his CAT claim. He provides
little to no detail to support his assertion that a government official, or someone
acting in an official capacity, would instigate or acquiesce in his torture. The
BIA’s decision to affirm the IJ’s denial of CAT relief is supported by substantial
evidence. See Ontunez-Tursios v. Ashcroft, 303 F.3d 341, 353 (5th Cir. 2002).
