Kone v. Holder, 09-2689

Malian citizens' petition for review of BIA's denial of their application for asylum and related relief is granted, and the BIA's decision vacated and remanded as the BIA effectively only addressed half of petitioner's argument in concluding that petitioner could not assert a derivative claim based on potential hardship to her daughter, but failed to address her assertion that female genital mutilation of the daughter would also constitute direct persecution of her parents.
