Asylum seekers in the U.S. have the right to stay in the country while their protection claim is being processed. They can pursue educational opportunities and, if they’re a refugee or asylee, they’re allowed to permanently live and work in the U.S. with federal laws safeguarding their right to work. Asylum seekers should receive, at least, the same rights and basic assistance as any other legal foreign resident.

To qualify for asylum in the United States, individuals must establish a well-founded fear of persecution in their home country based on factors such as race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a specific social group. Applicants must be physically present in the U.S. or at a border and must submit their application within one year of their most recent arrival, unless they meet specific exceptions.

The U.S. government assesses asylum cases on an individual basis, taking into account the applicant’s fear of persecution based on the protected grounds mentioned earlier. The decision also considers whether the applicant has resettled in another country before coming to the U.S., if they have passed through a safe third country, and if they meet the admissibility requirements of U.S. law.

Asylum seekers have two options for entering the U.S.: crossing the border or arriving at a U.S. port of entry. Once they are in the country, they can choose to apply for asylum either affirmatively or defensively.

The duration of the asylum process in the United States is subject to significant variation, contingent upon individual circumstances and the backlog of cases. Typically, it can span from a few months to several years. Hence, it is crucial to seek professional assistance to ensure the accurate and expeditious processing of your case.
