United States Court of Appeals For the Eighth Circuit ___________________________ No. 13-2251 ___________________________ Edgar Perez-Natareno lllllllllllllllllllllPetitioner v. Eric H. Holder, Jr., Attorney General of United States lllllllllllllllllllllRespondent ____________ Petition for Review of an Order of the Board of Immigration Appeals ____________ Submitted: February 18, 2014 Filed: February 21, 2014 [Unpublished] ____________ Before BENTON, BOWMAN, and SHEPHERD, Circuit Judges. ____________ PER CURIAM. Edgar Perez-Natareno, a citizen of Guatemala, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), which upheld an immigration judge’s (IJ’s) decision denying him withholding of removal. After careful review, we conclude that the BIA appropriately upheld the IJ’s denial of relief because it was supported by substantial evidence on the record as a whole. See Wijono v. Gonzales, Appellate Case: 13-2251 Page: 1 Date Filed: 02/21/2014 Entry ID: 4125775 439 F.3d 868, 872 (8th Cir. 2006) (noting that the denial of withholding of removal is upheld unless the evidence is so compelling that no reasonable fact finder could adopt the BIA’s position); Lopez-Zeron v. INS, 8 F.3d 636, 638 (8th Cir. 1993) (per curiam) (holding that a fear of general violence and unrest does not meet eligibility standard for withholding of removal). Accordingly, we deny the petition for review. See 8th Cir. R. 47B. ______________________________ -2- Appellate Case: 13-2251 Page: 2 Date Filed: 02/21/2014 Entry ID: 4125775
