Dong Ji v. Jefferson Sessions III

UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 17-2048 DONG JI, Petitioner, v. JEFFERSON B. SESSIONS III, Attorney General, Respondent. On Petition for Review of an Order of the Board of Immigration Appeals. Submitted: March 19, 2018 Decided: May 17, 2018 Before MOTZ, KEENAN, and WYNN, Circuit Judges. Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion. Leslie Anne Davis, Joseph R. Melanson, CROWELL & MORING, LLP, Washington, D.C., for Petitioner. Chad A. Readler, Acting Assistant Attorney General, Nancy E. Friedman, Senior Litigation Counsel, Brooke M. Maurer, Office of Immigration Litigation, UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Washington, D.C., for Respondent. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Dong Ji, a native and citizen of the People’s Republic of China, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (Board) dismissing his appeal from the Immigration Judge’s denial of his request for asylum and withholding of removal. We have thoroughly reviewed the record, including the transcript of Ji’s merits hearing and all supporting evidence. We conclude that the record evidence does not compel a ruling contrary to any of the agency’s factual findings, see 8 U.S.C. § 1252(b)(4)(B) (2012), and that substantial evidence supports the Board’s decision, INS v. Elias-Zacarias, 502 U.S. 478, 481 (1992). Accordingly, we deny the petition for review for the reasons stated by the Board. See In re Ji (B.I.A. Aug.9, 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DENIED 2 17-2048 Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit ca4 4th Cir. Dong Ji v. Jefferson Sessions III 17 May 2018 Unpublished 5e05ea5168fa751440fc7a800866c3f8ec7d55bb
