Asylum is a form of relief granted to people who have suffered past persecution or who have a well-founded fear of future persecution if returned to their home. The persecution must be based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group. After being granted asylum, after one year that person will be eligible to receive permanent legal status in the U.S. If you do not qualify for asylum, you may still be eligible for Withholding of Removal or Protection under the United Nations Convention Against Torture (CAT). Immigration Attorney John Vazquez has extensive experience applying for all three forms of relief and will review your case to see if you qualify.
