What is Asylum?

Sadly, many people experience persecution in their home countries. In 1948, the United Nations came up with a way to help immigrants escape the severe hardships they suffer under their nation’s government. It’s called asylum.

In 1980, the United States passed the Refugee Act, which made a way for asylum seekers to enter the U.S. and find protection under U.S. laws. After one year, individuals who have obtained asylum status may apply for permanent residence, work legally, and receive a social security card.

Who Qualifies for Asylum?

If you have come to the U.S. for protection from persecution in another country you may apply for asylum. You must be able to prove that you have experienced persecution in at least one of five ways.

The eligible categories of persecution include:

  • Religion
  • Race
  • Nationality
  • Political opinion
  • Social group memberships

You may apply for asylum up to one year after you have entered the United States. If you have resided in the U.S. for more than one year, you may also apply for asylum if you meet certain criteria, as set forth by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
