Seeking Asylum in the United States

Each year, refugees account for approximately ten percent of all immigrants to the United States. These asylum-seekers come from all over the world, fleeing persecution and threats to their fundamental human rights. There are many legal options available to refugees who wish to make a new and better life for themselves in the United States of America.

At the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC, we take pride in helping clients from around the world realize their dreams of relocating to the United States. If you have come to this country seeking asylum, or wish to know more about your options as a refugee, contact an experienced Austin immigration attorney today at 512-323-2333.

Who Can Seek Asylum?

International law protects individuals who seek asylum for various kinds of persecution. Domestic U.S. law has confirmed that the following categories of persecution entitle a person to refugee status:

  • Religious persecution
  • Political persecution
  • Racial persecution
  • Persecution based on social group or caste

Despite the United States’ commitment to protecting refugees from persecution, not all refugees find permanent asylum in the U.S. The law states that refugees may not be returned to the country from which they fled. However, to remain in the U.S., asylum-seekers must file for refugee status. There is an annual refugee quota, so it is important to complete the required paperwork in an accurate and timely manner.
