Bashyrov, Trial Attorney, 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 Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.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: Moses Sebastian Obam Otiato, a native and citizen of Kenya, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (Board) dismissing his appeal from the Immigration Judge’s decision denying his motion to reopen and rescind his in absentia removal order. We have reviewed the administrative record and the Board’s order and find no abuse of discretion. See 8 C.F.R. § 1003.23(b) (2017). We therefore deny the petition for review for the reasons stated by the Board. See In re Otiato (B.I.A. July 17, 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2 17-1897 Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit ca4 4th Cir. Moses Otiato v. Jefferson Sessions III 1 February 2018 Unpublished f5c280f7c5d49478317226b93252bfef0a208249
