The U.S government has a special visa for refugees who are fleeing from their country of origin. This visa i-589 or I-589 protects those who face racial, religious or any minority persecution in their place of origin. Political asylum can be requested upon entry through legal channels.
Asylees who request this status are most commonly fleeing from countries like El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and México. The status is a usable defense in immigration court to avoid deportation. It also helps the refugee’s family who might be under threat.
It’s important to note that because of a lack of information, most people who are eligible do not request this status within the given time period (1 year) to do so. When the status is not requested within the first year upon arriving in the US, potential applicants lose the opportunity to obtain residence, their green cards and American citizenship.
We can help stop refugee deportation and determine whether you are eligible for Asylum in the United States of America.
