What is asylum?
Asylum is a form of protection granted by the United States to individuals who have fled their home countries due to persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. Asylum is governed by the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), specifically under Section 208.
