Outcome for Case #10827

Level: 
Immigration Judge
Date of Decision: 
Wednesday, November 27, 2013
IJ Outcome: 
Granted
Type of Relief Granted/Denied: 
Asylum
Jurisdiction: 
Basis for the Asylum/Withholding Decision: 
PSG
Additional Information: 
The IJ found that the respondent belongs to a particular social group, and that while the police were willing to protect the respondent from further abuse they may not have had the ability to do so. This is due to background on El Salvador which is still one of the most violent countries in the region and where domestic violence and femicide continue to be human rights problems. The IJ also determined that the respondents departure was most likely motivated by a desire to remove herself from danger rather than defeat police protection. The IJ concludes that the respondent has shown a reasonable likelihood of experiencing future harm should she return to El Salvador.
