Branda, Acting Assistant Attorney General, Erica B. Miles, Senior Litigation Counsel, David Schor, 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 Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.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: Fen Min Chen, 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 of the Immigration Judge’s decision denying his requests for asylum and withholding of removal. * We have thoroughly reviewed the record, including the relevant exhibits and the transcript of Chen’s merits hearing. We conclude that the record evidence does not compel a ruling contrary to that of the agency, see 8 U.S.C. § 1252(b)(4)(B) (2012), and that substantial evidence supports the agency’s decision. 481 (1992). See INS v. Elias-Zacarias, 502 U.S. 478, Accordingly, we deny the petition for review for the reasons stated by the Board. 877 (B.I.A. Mar. 21, 2014). See In re: Chen, No. A087 908 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 * Chen does not dispute the agency’s denial of his request for protection under the Convention Against Torture. 2
