Green Card through Asylum - Best Immigration Law Attorney | Los Angeles | The Law Offices of Omar Zambrano - Free Consultation 1-800-562-0004
Asylum and refugee status is available to those, who seek protection in the U.S. because of a valid fear of returning to their home country. If you should qualify for asylum or refugee status, you may apply for permanent residence (green card) and live in the U.S. permanently.
Asylum is a type of protection from removal to a country, in which you fear persecution, that allows an eligible refugee to stay in the US and eventually become a permanent resident.
Who can apply for Asylum?
Any person (including illegal aliens) can apply for asylum within one year of arriving into the US unless circumstances in your home country have changed or extraordinary circumstances caused you to apply after one year.
(A) any person who is outside any country of such person's nationality or, in the case of a person having no nationality, is outside any country in which such person last habitually resided, and who is unable or unwilling to return to, and is unable or unwilling to avail himself or herself of the protection of, that country because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion, or
(B) in such circumstances as the President after appropriate consultation (as defined in section 207(e) of this Act) may specify, any person who is within the country of such person's nationality or, in the case of a person having no nationality, within the country in which such person is habitually residing, and who is persecuted or who has a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. The term "refugee" does not include any person who ordered, incited, assisted, or otherwise participated in the persecution of any person on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. For purposes of determinations under this Act, a person who has been forced to abort a pregnancy or to undergo involuntary sterilization, or who has been persecuted for failure or refusal to undergo such a procedure or for other resistance to a coercive population control program, shall be deemed to have been persecuted on account of political opinion, and a person who has a well founded fear that he or she will be forced to undergo such a procedure or subject to persecution for such failure, refusal, or resistance shall be deemed to have a well founded fear of persecution on account of political opinion.
Can an Asylee or Refugee apply for Permanent Residence (Green Card)?
Yes, after one year of your approval as an asylee or refugee. Asylees may apply for permanent residence after one year. Refugees must apply for permanent residence after one year.
