There are two paths to claim asylum in the U.S. The affirmative asylum process is for individuals who are not in removal proceedings and the defensive asylum process is for individuals who are in removal proceedings.

You must show that this persecution was (or would be) inflicted on you because of one or more “protected grounds”: your race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion


Winning an asylum case for clients isn’t a matter of luck. It is the result of careful preparation and detailed documentation that paints a clear picture of the persecution you have experienced in the past or your reasonable fear of being persecuted in the future
Why does USCIS take so long to process asylum cases? USCIS can take many years to process some asylum cases. One of the reasons for this is the way USCIS processes cases. USCIS does not process asylum cases in the order in which they came in, starting with the oldest cases first.

President Biden’s  administration has added some humanity to U.S. immigration system.

He eliminated the Trump Rule requiring that asylum seekers wait 365 days to apply for work permits.

The new rule allows asylum seekers to apply for work permits 150 days after they receive their asylum receipts.

He has changed the Asylum Processing Rule by allowing Asylum Officers to conduct Asylum Merits Interviews of certain asylum seekers who have passed credible fear interviews rather than having those cases referred directly to the immigration court. If successful, applicants may be granted asylum. 

President Biden has also Terminated former President Trump’s Remain in Mexico Program also know as MPP.
