Non-citizens living in the U.S. may be granted asylum if they are unable or unwilling to return to their country of nationality because of persecution, or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. Asylum can provide relief from removal and a grant of asylum may lead to permanent residence. There have been many recent policy changes to asylum law. More than ever, it is especially important to speak to an immigration attorney before filing for asylum. It is also important to speak with an attorney if you have already filed for asylum and are waiting for your asylum interview or court date.
