Case Summary

The immigration judge granted asylum to a woman from El Salvador who suffered domestic violence and sex trafficking. She was essentially pimped out by her father and then when she left home, she was abused by her partner. The immigration judge granted on the protected ground of "women and girls in the immediate family of [name of applicant's father]." The applicant's attorney also proposed other PSGs, among them "Salvadoran women and girls viewed as property," but the judge said that one was untenable due to circularity. A-B- was mentioned during this litigation.
