Miguel Angel Mira-corpeno, Petitioner, v. Immigration and Naturalization Service, Respondent, 108 F.3d 338 (9th Cir. 1997)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 108 F.3d 338 (9th Cir. 1997) Submitted Feb. 3, 1997. *Decided Feb. 10, 1997

Petition to Review a Decision of the Board of Immigration Appeals, No. A70-217-716.



Before: BEEZER and KOZINSKI, Circuit Judges, and SHUBB,**  District Judge.


The Board of Immigration Appeals correctly concluded that petitioner is ineligible for asylum or withholding of deportation because any threat to his safety stems not from political persecution, but from a personal vendetta between his family and a rival clan. See Zayas-Marini v. INS, 785 F.2d 801, 806 (9th Cir. 1986). In reaching this conclusion, the Board thoroughly reviewed the record and provided "an adequate statement of reasons for its decision." Ghaly v. INS, 58 F.3d 1425, 1430 (9th Cir. 1995).



The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 9th Cir.R. 34-4


The Honorable William B. Shubb, Chief United States District Judge for the Eastern District of California, sitting by designation
