PER CURIAM:

view counter
1

Appellant seeks reversal of the decision of the Board of Immigration Appeals denying he application for suspension of deportation under section 244(a)(1) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. 1254(a)(1).

2

Appellant's only argument is that her deportation would result in 'extreme hardship' within the meaning of section 244(a)(1). The facts she recites in support of this assertion, however, detail only a claim that she will suffer economically by deportation. A claim of economic disadvantage has been consistently rejected by this court as sufficient to compel a finding of extreme hardship. Fong Choi Yu v. Immigration and Naturalization Service (9th Cir. 1971) 439 F.2d 719; Llacer v. Immigration and Naturalization Service (9th Cir. 1968) 388 F.2d 681.

3

The decision of the Board of Immigration Appeals is affirmed.
