What is Asylum?
Asylum refers to the protection granted by a country, the United States in this case, to foreign nationals seeking refuge here due to persecution or the threat of persecution in their home country. It can also be defined as the protection given to foreign nationals who meet international law’s interpretation of a refugee when they arrive at a country’s border.
According to the 1967 protocol and the United Nations 1951 Convention, a refugee is a person who is unwilling or unable to go back to their home country and can’t get protection from their home country for various reasons.
Criteria for Seeking Asylum
Asylum is based on past persecution or fear of future persecution in your home country due to race, religion, nationality, membership in a social group, or political opinions.
The criteria for seeking asylum include:
- Well-founded fear of persecution: You must have a genuine and well-founded fear of persecution if you were to return to your home country.
- Persecution based on protected grounds: The persecution you face must be based on your race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group.
- Inability or unwillingness to seek protection: You must demonstrate that your own government is unwilling or unable to protect you from the persecution you face.
- No safe haven available: You cannot relocate within your home country to a place where you would not face persecution.
