The Matter of Kasinga and Layli Miller Muro & Karen Musalo
Sydney Downs, 13
What is FGM? FGM, or Female Genital Mutilation, is the practice of mutilating a woman’s genitals for cultural reasons. It has no know medical benefits, and can lead to many complications. It can cause infection due to unsterilized tools, it can lead to hepatitis B or C due to a number of causes, it can cause extreme pain, and lead to hundreds of psychological complications. There are four subtypes. The type usually practiced in Togolese women is type III, the most extreme and life-threatening one. It’s where the clitoral gland is sliced off with a knife, sharpened piece of glass, or razors. This is all while the child or teenager is full conscious and awake, and is usually held down by her family. After this, the labia minora is mutilated with the same tool, and the labia majora is sewn over the urethra and vagina, leaving a pin sized hole for urine and period blood to escape. For childbirth, it is sliced open with a knife and usually resewn, only further putting the woman at risk for all types of diseases and infections. This practice is outlawed in many countries, but is exceptionally common in east African and north African countries. Around 115,000,000 women have undergone a type of FGM, and the number is only more likely to grow, due to the lack of protecion in many countries for young women.
Fauziya Kassindja was (at the time of the legal case) a Togolese teenager that belonged to the Tchamba-Kunsuntu Tribe of northern Togo. She was 17 years old, and had been protected from the practice usually performed on 15 year olds by her father, until he died. After his death in 1993, her father’s sister became her legal guardian, and her mother relocated to Benin. Her aunt decided to force a marriage to a 45 year old man with three wives already on the young girl. At this time, Fauziya Kassindja had completed 2 years of high school. Her aunt needed Fauziya Kassindja to undergo FGM before she could be married.
Layli Miller Muro
Born Layli Miller Bashir, Layli Miller Muro was a law student at American University during the Matter of Kasinga legal case. She took on Fauziya Kassindja’s case, and has gone on to become the founder and CEO of Tahirih Justic Center, and continues to focus on legal cases involving rape, domestic violence, FGM and other gender discrimination cases for women and children all around the world. She has been recognized by many for her pro bono work for vulnerable people all over the USA, and received many awards for her innovation in the legal world.
Professor Karen Musalo is a professor and chair director of International Law at UC Hasting College of Law, as well as the founding director of the Center for Gender and Refuge Studies. She was the lead co-author of Refugee Law and Policy: An International and Comparative approach. She was the lead attorney of the Matter of Kasinga, and has continued her groundbreaking work for refugees and gender studies. Another famous case she’s worked on is Rody Alvarado’s, further proving that domestic violence is reason to grant asylum. She was the first attorney to work with psychologists to help traumatized refugees, which is now become standard. She also edited the handbook for practitioners of law on how to deal with cross cultural issues. She’s received a number of awards for her teaching and humanity, and how well she has impacted the way that the U.S. interacts and helps refugees. She also focuses on issues of domestic violence in many South American countries.
The Matter of Kasinga.
In 1993, Kassindja was 17. In fear of undergoing type III FGM, she and her older sister escaped Togo to Ghana, but were fearful of being found. Their mother gave them money for plane tickets, which they used to travel to Germany. It is unclear if Kassindja’s sister came with her to Germany, but it is likely that she remained in Ghana, since she was less at threat than her sister.
In Germany, Kassindja found a German woman, who she could speak to in English. Kassindja told her about her situation, and the German woman offered her a shelter until she could fly to America, where Kassindja had family. Kassindja could not remain in Germany long term because she could not speak German, and couldn’t continue her education.
Eventually, after two months, Kassindja met a Nigerian man in Germany, who offered her his sister’s British passport, so she could apply for refuge in America. She bought it from him, and in December 1994, flew to the United States, and immediately asked for refugee status. She remained in Immigration Custody until April 1996. Her case began around the summer of 1995, and her family hired law student, Layli Miller Muro and attorney Karen Musalo
In court, Kassindja and her lawyers testified that the Togolese police knew about FGM, and would not protect her, that her family wished to mutilate her, and shared information about FGM and her marriage.
There were inconsistencies about whether Kassindja was actually technically married, and like a traumatized teenage girl would be, she was confused herself. Her marriage application was signed only by her ‘husband’ and though they had a traditional ceremony and rituals, the technicalities are blurry. Also, she was unsure about who actually performed the FGM for others, in her tribe. But these inconsistencies were not undermining to her credibility, and INS (Immigration and Naturalization Services) suggestion that these showed Kassindja lacked credibility were rejected.
Then the issue was if FGM was persectution or not. They found that under Acosta, that Kassindja was a part of social group that she could never leave or change, and therefore checked that box. Then, they decided that FGM was persecution, and that it applied to INS’s ‘shock the conscience’ test, among other definitions. Then it was found that Kassindja’s fear of FGM was reasonable, and many would find it terrifying as well. Finally, it was decided that Kassindja’s persecution was ‘on account of…’ her being a part of a certain, defined social group.
The INS suggested that Kassindja had not proved that she couldn’t escape FGM by moving to some other part of Togo, but she presented credible testimony to prove otherwise, that it was a common practice, and her husband was in close ties with the Togolese police.
Therefore, in June 1996, the following conclusion was reached:
“We have determined that the applicant is eligible for asylum because she has a well-founded fear of persecution on account of her membership in a particular social group in Togo. A grant of asylum to an eligible applicant is discretionary. The final issue is whether the applicant merits a favorable exercise of discretion. The danger of persecution will outweigh all but the most egregious adverse factors. Matter of Pula, 19 I&N Dec. 467, 474 (BIA 1987). The type of persecution feared by the applicant is very severe. 367 Interim Decision #3278 To the extent that the Immigration Judge suggested that the applicant had a legal obligation to seek refuge in Ghana or Germany, the record does not support such a conclusion. The applicant offered credible reasons for not seeking refuge in either of those countries in her particular circumstances. The applicant purchased someone else’s passport and used it to come to the United States. However, upon arrival, she did not attempt to use the false passport to enter. She told the immigration inspector the truth. See Matter of Y-G-, 20 I&N Dec. 794 (BIA 1994). We have weighed the favorable and adverse factors and are satisfied that discretion should be exercised in favor of the applicant. Therefore, we will grant asylum to the applicant.”

“Adopt a senior El Paso“ brings back the joy of senior year to seniors which got ruined due to COVID-19
The senior year of everyone is a memory that reflects the good times of life when life was full of joy and zeal. A person always remembers the memories of his senior year.
But due to the present situation of COVID-19 had ruined this experience for the current year senior students. Their schools got closed early, and they were unable to enjoy any prom or banquet or ramp walks. This made many students very sad. These are the words of some seniors:
"Everybody always says wait until your senior year, just wait your senior year is going to be a blast," Dylan Mauldin, Austin High School senior, said.
"That was probably the last time we ever saw our friends," Adrien Gonzalez, Ysleta High School senior, said. "I was pretty sad. I was upset, confused mainly."
Seeing this sadness among seniors, Christina Acala from El Paso started a group named "Adopt a High School Senior El Paso." The initiative of this group was to let people adopt senior students and send them wishes and messages and greeting to make them feel happy and delighted. After she posted it on Facebook, many people joined in for the movement and adopted many seniors and gifted them with different things. Adoption of seniors became a community effort, and even the school alumni adopted Seniors from current batches.

Fourth death occurred due to COVID-19 on Thursday morning, and the number of Corona positive cases increased to 34 with four new cases.
Cheryl Fraser, Comal County director of public health, said: "We've seen a significant ramp-up in the number of cases in Comal County in the past week, as of yesterday evening, we had 323 tests reported. Eighty of those tests are pending and 210 tests came back negative. As of this morning, we have 34 positives." during Commissioner's meeting.
The woman who died was 80 years old and died at home and was found Corona positive in postmortem reports. Her husband suffered from COVID-19 and was declared dead in San Antonio on Tuesday. Sixteen patients had recovered from the disease, said Fraser.
"As a result of bringing more members of our Public Health staff into the process of monitoring and making contact with those who have tested positive in the county, we have been able to confirm that these patients have recovered and no longer need to be isolated at home," said Fraser. "Meanwhile, we continue to monitor other patients to ensure they are isolating themselves and protecting our community."
Tuesday records of COVID-19 cases are:
- 324 tests conducted
- 34 positive tests
- 210 negative tests
- 80 results still pending
Nursing students want to help fight Corona graduation became a barrier
Nursing is a clinical learning profession, and professionals need hands-on experience to get their degrees. They are just a few hours of clinical work away from getting degrees, but due to present situations, they are unable to complete clinical hours.
“It’s the application of the knowledge; Nursing is a practiced profession; we’re a hands-on profession,” said Fara Bowler, the senior director of experiential learning at the University of Colorado College of Nursing.
The clinical work is part-time and paid. It had also affected students economically. Many nursing students want to work to help the pandemic affected people, but their graduation is stopping them from doing so. To solve this problem, the University of Colorado and 20 other Colorado schools sent a letter to the nursing board and governor to grant a waiver to students so that they can take the state exam and graduate to help fight this pandemic.
The letter was sent to the state board on March 20. After this, some other schools had individually demanded the same kind of waiver for nursing students. The schools had not received any response yet.
Tammy Spencer, the assistant dean of the undergraduate program and the University of Colorado College of Nursing, said: that if this waiver is given to the students, this could increase our workforce to fight Coronavirus and at the same time help the students from any backlogs as COVID-19 had forced than to delay their graduation.
