What is asylum?

A non-United States citizen can seek political asylum in the United States if they have a fear of being persecuted in their country of origin because of their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. For example, some individuals flee because their government has targeted them for being in the political opposition. Others flee because their particular tribe is subject to ethnic cleansing. Some women flee because they do not want to be forced into marriage, female circumcision, or wearing a hijab.

If granted political asylum, individuals have the right to remain in the United States and the right to family reunification (with spouse and children). Eventually, they have the right to apply for U.S. citizenship.
