Before SPROUSE and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.



Maria Ofelia Bitas, a citizen of the Philippines, appeals from the Board of Immigration Appeals' decision dismissing her challenge to a deportation order entered by the Immigration Judge, on evidence that Bitas had overstayed her temporary visa in violation of 8 U.S.C. § 1251(a) (2) (1988). Our review of the record discloses that the Board's decision is supported by substantial evidence and that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the Board. Bitas v. INS, No. A70-304-721 (BIA Feb. 27, 1992). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the Court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
