Prior History:

Petition for Review from the Board of Immigration Appeals. INS Nos. A29-557-397, A29-557-398, A29-557-399.

Disposition:

PETITION DENIED.

Counsel:

For SERGIO A. MORA-GUIDO, MICHAEL TORRES, LUZ M. MORA-TORRES, Petitioners: Suzanne B. Friedman, Esq., Daly City, CA.

Judges:

Before: GOODWIN, PREGERSON, and KOZINSKI, Circuit Judges.

Opinion:

ORDER * * This disposition is not appropriate for publication and may not be cited to or by the courts of this circuit except as provided by Ninth Circuit Rule 36-3. Having considered the briefs filed by the parties, we conclude that the Board of Immigration Appeals did not err in its finding that petitioner Mora-Guido was not statutorily eligible for asylum and withholding of deportation. The BIA's finding that Mora-Guido's testimony was not credible was supported by substantial evidence. The remaining portions of his testimony and application accepted by the BIA as credible were insufficient bases on which to establish statutory eligibility for asylum or withholding of deportation. Consequently, we affirm the BIA's decision. We also affirm the BIA's grant of voluntary departure. PETITION DENIED.
