If you are someone who has fled your native country to seek safety in the United States, you have likely already overcome some daunting challenges in your journey to get here. Unfortunately, more challenges await you if you are planning to apply for asylum so that you can remain in the country legally. Navigating the American immigration system alone can be overwhelming, as it involves following stringent legal requirements, completing extensive paperwork, providing supplementary documentation, and meeting strict deadlines. If persecution, violence, or other danger awaits you in your native country, however, applying for asylum gives you and your family the best chance at being able to live in the U.S. without the fear of deportation. 

Our firm, Ortega Law Group, has led countless clients who were in the same situation as you to achieve their immigration goals. Call our experienced Mesa asylum lawyer today to schedule your free consultation and learn more about how we can help you through the application process from start to finish.

Who Is Eligible For Asylum?

Any person who is fearful of persecution in their native country or has already been persecuted in some way due to their race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership of a certain social group or organization is technically eligible to apply for asylum in the U.S.. 

Persecution is defined as harassment, punishment, injury, oppression, or other means of physical or psychological harm, though U.S. immigration law does not specifically list examples of specific instances that would qualify or disqualify someone from being granted asylum. Typically, asylum has been recognized as a necessity in instances where a foreign government:

  • Put political opponents or “undesirables” in prison or subjected them to torture
  • Fired weapons at crowds of protestors
  • Committed acts of genocide
  • Did not allow citizens of certain religions to vote or participate in political processes
  • Forced citizens to undergo a program of coerce population control (forced abortions or sterilizations)
  • And more. 

Is Asylum The Same As Temporary Protected Status?

Though both humanitarian programs, TPS and asylum often get mistakenly confused with the other. They both provide an opportunity for refugees facing unsafe conditions in their home country to live and work in the United States. The main difference between TPS and asylum is that TPS is not individualized. Any person from a country on the list of TPS-eligible countries is able to obtain protected status. TPS can also be revoked much easier, and does not provide a pathway to lawful permanent residency as asylum does. 

Seeking asylum requires highly individualized research into the applicant’s background and specific circumstances in order to confirm that there is a real threat to their safety in their home country from either the government or a third-party organization that the government cannot, or will not, control. Due to these factors, it is much more difficult to prove that someone needs asylum.

If you believe you are eligible for asylum, and your home country is also on the list of TPS-designated nations, but you are not sure which immigration pathway to take, our skilled Mesa asylum lawyer can review your unique circumstances and help you make the decision that would benefit you and your family most. We are able to assist you in both application processes!
