There are many rights and freedoms available to people in the United States that are often taken for granted, including the right to free speech, freedom of religion, and many others. Many people choose to come to the United States from all over the world because they want to live in a place in which they can live, speak, and believe whatever they will (within reason, of course) without fear of persecution. One way to do this is to apply for asylum.
The U.S. government only accepts a certain number of legally qualified applicants for asylum each year. This number is determined by the President and Congress on a yearly basis and is subject to change based on their decision. In recent years, this number has been capped at 80,000 individuals per year.
In order to qualify, you must be able to prove that you would face persecution in your home country based on:
You must also be able to prove that the persecution was either caused by the government, or that the government is unwilling or unable to prevent it.
Since there is a limit to the number of refugees that the U.S. accepts, it is important to act quickly to improve your chances of being granted asylum.
