SIJ Victory in California: Matter of Leslie H.

"[T]he evidence overwhelmingly supports Leslie’s request for the necessary findings to enable her to file her SIJ application with the appropriate federal authorities. The juvenile court could not reasonably deny her request, and we therefore grant her writ relief to vacate the juvenile court’s order and substitute a new and different order sustaining the relevant SIJ factual findings." - Matter of Leslie H., Feb. 28, 2014.
