Asylum

Applications for Asylum in the United States and/or for Withholding of Removal (formerly called "Withholding of Deportation") are additional remedies available to some individuals. You may file for Asylum if you are physically present in the United States and you are seeking protection from the United States because you have suffered persecution or fear that you will suffer persecution due to: Race, Religion, Nationality, Membership in a Particular Social Group or Political Opinion.

There are two paths to apply for asylum. In "Affirmative Asylum" cases, an individual is physically present in the U.S. and applies within one year of his or her arrival OR an individual applying at a point of entry who has declared his or her Application for Asylum to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. The decision is usually made by a USCIS Asylum Officer.

In "Defensive Asylum" cases, an individual has requested asylum as a form of relief or defense against forcible removal from the U.S. before an Immigration Judge. The individual may have been undocumented or in violation of his or her status when arrested in the U.S. or was apprehended trying to enter the U.S. without proper documentation and found to have a credible fear of persecution or torture. The decision is usually made by the U.S. Immigration Judge.
