Vladimir Kormos, his wife, and their two children petition for review of a decision by the Board of Immigration Appeals ("BIA") denying their application for asylum in the United States. The BIA also denied petitioners' application for withholding of deportation to their native Slovakia. The BIA's determination that petitioners do not have a well-founded fear of persecution is supported by substantial evidence. We affirm the BIA's decision and deny the petition for review for substantially the reasons stated by the BIA in its opinion, Matter of Kormos (BIA Mar. 28, 1996).
