Desai, who took the case pro bono from the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law’s Immigration Clinic, mobilized a dream team of professional women, all of whom agreed to work for free on the case. Together, they secured Soledad’s release from Eloy and ultimately prevailed on her asylum claim.
