PERSECUTED (HARMED) ?

Unfortunately, even in today’s advanced modern world, people are persecuted and harmed on the basis of their race, all over the world. Race is an outdated and obsolete social concept that largely seeks to divide groups of people based on physical traits (such as skin color) and geographic origins.

If you were harmed or persecuted on the basis of your race, then you will have to show that the person who persecuted (harmed) you, did so on the basis of that person’s subjective belief that you were a member of a particular racial group in society. Also, if you have not been personally targeted because of your race, but your home society has laws and customs that systematically discriminate against people of your race to the point where basic human rights and dignity are violated, then you may also have a compelling asylum case. Asylum claims based on race should be considered, whenever a person has faced significant discrimination and harm based on the fact that they are part of a racial minority in a country.  Sadly, it is common and has always been common for majority races to discriminate and harm racial minorites around the world. The United States knows this story all too well with their own history of systematic slavery and segregation of African Americans by White Americans. Likewise, it is also possible to pursue asylum based on being in the racial majority and being persecuted by a minority race (such as was the case with South Africa and the apartheid). Whatever the case, the United States is firmly against racial discrimination and racial-based harm, and U.S. asylum law protects individuals present in the United States, who are fleeing harm or fear harm based on their race in their home countries. If you believe that you may have a claim to asylum based on your racial or perceived racial identity, do not hesitate to contact us today.

Can I ask for political asylum from outside the US?

NO. To apply for political asylum, you must be in the United States (embassies or diplomatic missions outside the US will not help you in this matter). Being outside the US, you can only apply for refugee status and this procedure is also a complicated procedure.

Can I apply for asylum when crossing the border?

This is possible, and such cases often occur at the border crossing with Mexico. The application directly on the border is an extreme measure. A very important point is that when you cross the border without the necessary permission (US visa) and asylum application, you are most likely to be detained and placed in an immigration prison where you will conduct initial inquiries and check all the facts you previously stated . The decisions of the border service can be delayed for weeks or even months.

Can I apply for political asylum if I am illegally in the US?

You have the right to defend and examine your application, even if you are in an illegal status. It is very important that this happens in the first year of your stay in the country. Otherwise, you have to argue, there are compelling reasons why you did not do this before.

How long does it take to get an interview for asylum?

Beginning on January 29, 2018, the Immigration Department for Asylum (USCIS Citizenship and Immigration Service Group) will give priority to the newest applications when assigning interviews. Such a change in the schedule of interviews will make it possible to weed out those applicants who use groundless statements and try to use this process solely to obtain a work permit and will enable the USCIS to immediately identify such persons and begin the process of their deportation. In reality, the new Priority will allow the USCIS to make decisions on qualified asylum seekers more quickly and efficiently.

Can I apply for asylum with a minimum of materials, and send documents and evidence after I apply?

It is possible, but we do not recommend it. In cases where you sent an off-the-shelf petition, the fact of not being prepared may negatively affect your interview and raise suspicions about the reliability of the information provided earlier.

Is it possible to apply for political asylum without a lawyer?

Some apply for political asylum on their own, filling out Form I-589 and attaching a declaration. Applicants, who apply for political asylum in the US do not need to hire a lawyer and an interpreter to apply for political asylum in the United States. But you need to consider important points: 1. Immigration Attorneys analyze the facts of persecution, apply immigration laws to the facts. 2. Attorneys help applicants to fillout the necessary immigration forms and not make any mistakes in their filing. 3. Attorneys help Applicants prepare for the interview, correctly write a declaration, collect documents. 4. Attorneys have the right to intervene in the process by using immigration law at all stages of the proceedings. 5. Attorneys can help find an interpreter and represent refugees in interviews and in the process of deportation to the immigration court. When your future is at stake, you need to weigh everything for and against the participation of a Attorneys in your process. Consult the Immigration Attorneys – Here

      All through our immigration process, which took about 5 years, Julia Greenberg demonstrated professionalism, exemplary work ethics and deep knowledge of immigration law. She was always available and provided thought through answers to our … More multiple questions. In my opinion, what really distinguishes Julia from other immigration lawyers we have worked with is that she is willing to go the extra mile for her clients. The fact that the prosecutor in our case complimented Julia for her outstanding effort serves as the best proof of her professionalism.
