Stephen W. Yale-Loehr, Professor of Immigration Law Practice, Cornell Law School, writes: "[Linked here] is a redacted version of a recent [18 Dec 2015] BIA asylum victory that my colleague Sital Kalantry and two Cornell law students litigated. The case involves a woman from El Salvador who was abused by her former domestic partner. She claimed membership in the particular social group of women in El Salvador who are unable to leave their domestic relationship. The IJ denied the asylum claim, holding that Matter of A-R-C-G-, 26 I&N Dec. 388 (BIA 2014), did not apply because she was not married. The BIA reversed and granted asylum. The decision thus extends A-R-C-G- to unmarried domestic partners."
