The Asylum Application Process
Asylum is available to individuals who meet the legal definition of refugee, who are already living in the United States, or who are seeking to enter the country at a border. Asylum and refugee status are based on the fact that the individual has been persecuted in his or her current country or fears persecution should he or she return.
Persecution is based on:
- Political opinion.
- One’s membership in a specific social group.
Those seeking asylum will generally be allowed to remain in the U.S. while their application is pending. Individuals who apply may also include a spouse and their children when they file. You may also apply to work in the United States when you apply for asylum. Those who live in the U.S. for at least one year after being granted asylum may apply for a Green Card.
Refugees are those who live outside of the U.S. and are of humanitarian concern. As a refugee, you must be admissible to the U.S. and have suffered or fear you will suffer persecution in your country of origin. To gain refugee status, you must obtain a referral to the Refugee Admissions Program. After that, you can apply and go through the refugee application process.
