Asylum: If you face persecution in your native country, seek shelter in California
What is Asylum? Asylum is an immigration status the can be claimed here in the U.S. by foreign nationals. Those seeking asylum are fearful of persecution in their country of origin and wish to escape the persecution by staying here in the U.S. Persecution means harm because of someone’s: 1) political beliefs, 2) gender, 3) sexual orientation, 4) ethnicity, 5) nationality, or any other “group” of people sharing a common identity. Individuals who fear torture, rape, imprisonment, death, marginalization–among many other situations–are considered acts of persecution if they are committed based on those five grounds..
Eligibility. To be eligible for asylum, you must prove that 1) you are unable to return to your country of origin because you have a well- founded fear of either past or future persecution; and that 2) your persecution is on account of your race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or your political opinion. These five grounds can be further broken down into sub-groups, such as sexual orientation, gender, and other minority groups.
