Under United States immigration law, refugees who are fleeing harm or have reasonable fear of harm due to their race, religion, nationality, social group, or political opinion can receive asylum in the United Status.
Asylum status may be granted to people who meet the definition of a refugee under the Immigration and Nationality Act and are either already in the United States or seeking to be admitted at a United States port of entry.
After gaining asylum status, an asylee may work and stay in the United States. An asylee may also, after at least one full year, apply to obtain a green card and become a lawful permanent resident of the United States.
If you believe you are eligible for asylum in the United States, you should consider consulting with an attorney to help you follow the correct steps.
