The Unites States has always been a place for people to find safety from oppression, persecution and fear in their home countries.  The U. S. government offers a way to apply for permanent residency under two types of applications for asylum: Affirmative Asylum and Defensive Asylum.We help people apply for asylum under any of the following conditions:

  • ​Asylum from oppression or persecution based on race, ethnicity or nationality;
  • Asylum from persecution because of religious beliefs; 
  • Asylum from imprisonment based on a political opinion; 
  • Asylum from arrest or persecution based on membership in a social group; and
  • Asylum from fear of torture, under the rules of international conventions.
