A young Gambian mother entered the U.S. as a tourist and remained with her first daughter. The mother and daughter had both been forced to endure surgical Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in Gambia. When in the U.S., she married an undocumented Gambian man and conceived another child. The mother gave birth to a girl and the father returned to Gambia. Fearing that upon her return to Gambia the second daughter would be forced to undergo FGM as well, the mother contacted the Firm for assistance. The application for asylum was filed and granted.
