Redacted briefs on when LPRs can file for U visas

ASISTA recently filed a brief to the AAO in support of the Alaska Immigration Justice Project's appeal of a U visa denial based on VSC's view that the applicant had not sufficiently demonstrated loss of lawful permanent residence.  Many thanks to Maria Baldini-Potermin, who wrote the brief for ASISTA, and to the Alaska folks for pursuing this issue.
