Case Summary

IJ granted asylum on December 2007. Following the BIA's decisions in In re A-T- and In re A-K-, an Immigration Judge grants asylum to a woman based on past female genital cutting (FGC), as well as her fear that either her U.S. citizen daughter would be subjected to FGC if the family were forced to return to Ethiopia, or that she (and her family) would face ostracism rising to the level of persecution for rejecting the genital cutting of her daughter.
