RAUL SAINZ-RIVERA, Petitioner, v. JEFFERSON B. SESSIONS III, Attorney General, Respondent.


NOT FOR PUBLICATION

Agency No. A091-684-104 MEMORANDUM On Petition for Review of an Order of the Board of Immigration Appeals Before: PAEZ, BEA, and MURGUIA, Circuit Judges.

This disposition is not appropriate for publication and is not precedent except as provided by Ninth Circuit Rule 36-3.

Raul Sainz-Rivera, a native and citizen of Mexico, petitions pro se for review of the Board of Immigration Appeals' order dismissing his appeal from an immigration judge's ("IJ") decision denying asylum, withholding of removal, and relief under the Convention Against Torture. We have jurisdiction under 8 U.S.C. § 1252. We review de novo claims of due process violations in immigration proceedings. Cruz Rendon v. Holder, 603 F.3d 1104, 1109 (9th Cir. 2010). We deny the petition for review.

We reject Sainz-Rivera's contentions that the IJ violated his due process rights by not allowing him to present evidence of his good moral character or by exhibiting bias toward Sainz-Rivera. See Lata v. INS, 204 F.3d 1241, 1246 (9th Cir. 2000) (requiring error to prevail on a due process claim).

Sainz-Rivera does not otherwise challenge the agency's denial of relief.

PETITION FOR REVIEW DENIED.
