By definition, asylum is the legal protection afforded by the United States government to a person who can demonstrate a well-founded fear of persecution based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. The distinguishing feature of asylees is that they are seeking protection from deportation after having entered the United States, legally or illegally.
At Youngblood & Associates we are well-qualified and committed to represent you in seeking asylum.
There are two types of asylum: affirmative asylum and defensive asylum. The distinction between the two is whether or not the asylee has to defend himself in court.
