Asylum is a granted protection given to non-U.S. citizens temporary status in the United States. For individuals to be granted Asylum, they must fit the definition of a refugee according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. According to Immigration law, a refugee is “a person outside his or her country of nationality who is unable to return to his or her country of nationality because of persecution based on race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion” As mentioned above, the refugee must have proof and a valid reason to seek asylum. At the same time, refugees need to apply for a green card that could grant them permanent residence in the country.
