There is a case that Pam of Atlas Shrugs has been highlighting. A 17 year old girl has fled for her life from a Muslim family because she converted to Christianity.
One of the things we need to be careful of is setting up legal precedents that have unforeseen consequences. The precedent cases with female genital mutilation led to many fake Asylum cases.The precedents with Chinese family planning turned into a mini industry for snake heads.
At 17 this individual can be an emancipated minor. However, where would she stay and what job skills she would posses are unknown. In an ideal world the State would interview the child in question and research school records.
It is good to see that someone has set up a trust fund. It would be far better if a University such as Liberty could arrange some type of scholarship.
Opening this up as a precedent could have a huge impact on our immigration policy. We started out with noble intentions with Chinese family planning and VAWA but there have been some unforeseen problems that occurred.
