What Is Asylum?

“Asylum is a law in the United States that protects people who have been persecuted in their country, either for race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion. It is typically sought after by people who are escaping dangerous situations in their country. There is a 1-year deadline to file for asylum after having entered the United States. So, if you feel that you may have a case for asylum, it is wise to seek the help of a qualified attorney.”
