There are two primary ways a person may apply for asylum in the United States: the affirmative process and the defensive process. Asylum seekers who arrive at a U.S. port of entry or enter the United States without inspection generally must apply through the defensive asylum process. Both processes require the asylum seeker to be physically present in the United States.
Affirmative Asylum – A person not in removal proceedings may affirmatively apply for asylum through U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), a division of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Suppose the USCIS asylum officer does not grant the asylum application and the applicant does not have lawful immigration status. In that case, they are referred to the immigration court for removal proceedings. At this point, they may renew the request for asylum through the defensive process and appear before an immigration judge.
Defensive Asylum –A person in removal proceedings may apply for asylum defensively by filing the application with an immigration judge at the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) in the Department of Justice. Immigration attorneys at Adolphe Law in South Florida will represent you throughout this process.
