Asylum In Texas As A Defense To Deportation
If you are facing deportation from the United States, one possible defense is to request asylum. An asylum is a form of protection that can be granted to people who have been persecuted or fear persecution due to their race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. If you meet the requirements for asylum and are granted this status, you will be allowed to remain in the United States.
Asylum Application Steps
If you want to apply for asylum, you must first complete a form called an I-589. This application is available for free on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website. Once you have completed the form, you will need to submit it to the USCIS along with any supporting documentation.
The next step in the process is to attend an interview with an Asylum Officer. During this interview, the officer will ask you questions about your asylum claim. It is important to be prepared for this interview and to have all of your documentation ready. If your application is approved, you will be interviewed by an Asylum Officer. If the Asylum Officer finds that you have a credible fear of persecution, your case will be referred to an Immigration Judge.
At the hearing, you will have the opportunity to present evidence to support your claim for asylum. If the judge finds that you meet the requirements for asylum, you will be granted this status and allowed to remain in the United States.
If your asylum claim is approved, you will be granted asylum status and allowed to remain in the United States. If your claim is denied, you will be placed in removal proceedings and may be deported from the country.
