Minnesota Asylum Based on Race Attorney

Asylum Based on Race

If you are looking to apply for asylum based on race and are currently in the United States, you must be able to prove that you have a well-founded fear of persecution based on your race if you were to have to return to your home country. If you are currently in the removal proceedings that as opposed to simply applying to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, you must apply to an immigration judge.

The applicable definition of persecution based on race generally refers to infliction or threat of psychological, physical, or economic harm by either the government itself or another organization that the government is unable to, or unwilling to control.

You do not have to have experienced being individually targeted in order to apply for asylum based on race. If your home country’s norms or laws have changed to create a hostile environment that consists of racial discrimination that violates basic human rights and values, you are able to apply. In order to obtain asylum based on race you have to be able to prove to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, or an immigration judge that you are in real danger of either psychological, physical, or economic harm should you return to your home country.

In order to apply for asylum based on race, you must fill out form I-589. Once filled in completion, it has to be submitted along with documentation supporting your claim of racial discrimination, documents such as the U.S Secretary of State’s Human Rights Report, and credible media articles are recommended. In addition, your supporting documents should also include a detailed account of your personal experiences, witness testimony, and expert witness testimony.

After your application for asylum based on race has been submitted for at least 150 days, you are able to apply for an employment authorization document (EAD) by filling out form I-765. Once your application for asylum has been granted, you are able to apply for your immediate family, (spouse and children) to join you by submitting the Asylee Relative Petition, form I-730. After being granted asylum, and living in the United States for 12 months, you are able to apply for your green card, by submitting form I-485 application for adjustment of status.
