Update on My Pro Bono Case

Here's a quick update on the pro Bono asylum case that I've been working on. You might recall that our client is a woman from Guinea who arrived in the states as a young teenager. She left Guinea as she feared that she would be subjected to FGM/circumcision. We submitted her application and our legal brief and earlier this week she had her interview with immigration (now a division of Homeland Security). Her interview went well and, while we won't know the final outcome until next month, the preliminary report from the interviewer was very positive.
