The FIRN Domestic Violence-Asylum Portal (“portal”) was created as a resource for non-profit organizations, private lawyers, and other legal professionals, all of whom serve the interests of asylum seekers and defend the rights of those who seek asylum on the basis of domestic violence. The portal was NOT created for, or intended to be accessed or used by, anyone who is currently or expected in the near future to be, an employee, agent, affiliate or associate of the United States government including, but not limited to, any office or agency within the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security.
