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


Appellant seeks review of the Board of Immigration Appeals' decision denying relief on his application for asylum and withholding of deportation. Our review of the record discloses that the Board's decision is based upon substantial evidence and is without reversible error. Okata v. INS, No. A70-661-505 (B.I.A. Aug. 5, 1996). Accordingly, we deny the petition for review. 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.
