Lynch has been appointed to serve as Attorney General of the United States, and is substituted as respondent pursuant to Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 43(c). Appellate Case: 15-1271 Page: 1 Date Filed: 09/09/2015 Entry ID: 4314451 Isabela Ortiz-Juarez, a native and citizen of Guatemala, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) affirming an immigration judge’s denial of her application for asylum and withholding of removal.2 After careful consideration of the record and the parties’ submissions, see Davila-Mejia v. Mukasey, 531 F.3d 624, 627 (8th Cir. 2008), we deny the petition, because we conclude that substantial evidence supports the finding that Ortiz-Juarez failed to establish past persecution, or a well-founded fear of future persecution, on account of any protected ground, see Mambwe v. Holder, 572 F.3d 540, 546 (8th Cir. 2009). The petition for review is denied. See 8th Cir. R. 47B. ______________________________ 2 The ruling denying Convention Against Torture relief is not before us in this petition for review, because Ortiz failed to raise it before the BIA. -2- Appellate Case: 15-1271 Page: 2 Date Filed: 09/09/2015 Entry ID: 4314451
