Refugee status or asylum may be granted to people who have been persecuted or fear they will be persecuted on account of race, religion, nationality, and/or membership in a particular social group or political opinion. The fear must be well-founded or reasonable. You must work with an experienced lawyer to establish appropriately. You must file within one year you enter the country unless you can prove changed circumstances.
Consequences if you are denied asylum.
Many people seek asylum as safe resort to stay in US. Many lawyers actually encourage that because the petitioner gets to stay here indefinitely. Then what will happen if asylum is denied? There are two ways to apply for asylum. One way to affirmative, i.e, apply to USCIS. If denied, the petitioner will be put in removal proceeding where the petitioner will be put in front of a judge. The proceeding will take a long time. Petitioner will get work permit while waiting. Then most likely, a removal order will take place. Petitioners will be required to report to ICE until the date of removal is set.
Yes, it is true that petitioner gets to live in US indefinitely but the life quality is like in hell, unless it would be better than original one.
