United States Court of Appeals For the Eighth Circuit ___________________________ No. 12-3683 ___________________________ Mary Besong Oben; Treasure Tayui Oben; Cynthia Orock Mika Oben lllllllllllllllllllllPetitioners v. Eric H. Holder, Jr., Attorney General of the United States lllllllllllllllllllllRespondent ____________ Petition for Review of an Order of the Board of Immigration Appeals ____________ Submitted: August 7, 2013 Filed: August 22, 2013 [Unpublished] ____________ Before SMITH, BOWMAN, and SHEPHERD, Circuit Judges. ____________ PER CURIAM. Cameroonian citizens Mary Oben and her two daughters, Treasure Oben and Cynthia Oben, petition for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), upholding an immigration judge’s denial of asylum, withholding of removal, Appellate Case: 12-3683 Page: 1 Date Filed: 08/22/2013 Entry ID: 4067550 and relief under the Convention Against Torture (CAT).1 After careful review, we find no basis for reversal. In particular, we conclude that the immigration judge’s adverse credibility determination, which was specifically upheld by the BIA, was supported by substantial evidence on the administrative record as a whole. See Ali v. Holder, 686 F.3d 534, 538 (8th Cir. 2012) (standard of review); Fofanah v. Gonzales, 447 F.3d 1037, 1040 (8th Cir. 2006) (noting that adverse credibility finding was fatal to asylum, withholding-of-removal, and CAT claims because they were all “based upon the same discredited testimony”). Accordingly, we deny the petition for review. See 8th Cir. R. 47B. ______________________________ 1 Treasure Oben and Cynthia Oben were listed as derivative beneficiaries on Mary Oben’s application for relief. -2- Appellate Case: 12-3683 Page: 2 Date Filed: 08/22/2013 Entry ID: 4067550
