Petition for review of a denial of Chinese national's application for asylum, withholding of removal, and protection under the Convention Against Torture is affirmed where:  1) IJ and BIA correctly determined that petitioner's conviction qualified as an aggravated felony because loss to the victims exceeded $10,000 and he was thus removable as an aggravated felon and statutorily ineligible for asylum; and 2) the IJ and BIA applied the correct legal standard in determining that petitioner's conviction qualifies as a particularly serious crime.
