MATTER OF N-T- AS PROGENY OF MATTER OF A-T-: A TEACHING TOOL FOR FGM CASES

"This case will make an interesting teaching example for immigration professors discussing the ramifications of the Attorney General’s precedential decision on female genital mutilation (FGM), Matter of A-T- I&N Dec. 617 (A.G. 2008).   In the decision rendered by the BIA on October 14, 2011 case –Matter of N-T- (unpublished decision, see Download NT) – the Board reversed the IJ’s decision prohibiting respondent’s and her husband’s applications for asylum due to the one-year bar."
