Case #31131

The asylum office granted asylum to a Honduran woman who experienced childhood physical abuse from a paternal uncle and was raped as a child multiple times by an adult man who impregnated her resulting in the birth of her son. Although she reported the rapist to the police and even testified against him in court, Honduran authorities released him and did not protect her further. Fearing harm from the rapist and her uncle, she fled Honduras with her child. According to the attorney, the following PSGs were proffered “Female family members of UNCLE”; “Honduran girls”; “Honduran women”; and “Honduran women viewed as property by virtue of their position in a familial relationship”; and "Honduran cooperating witnesses." It is unclear on what basis the AO granted asylum.
