Asylum is a form of protection granted to persons in the United States who have been persecuted or who have a well-founded fear of persecution by their government, or a group that their government cannot control, because of their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. Persons who qualify and who have been in the United States for less than one year may be eligible for asylum. Persons who qualify and have been in the United States for more than one year may still be eligible for asylum, if there are changed circumstances in the country from which they seek asylum, or if exceptional circumstances prevented them from filing within one year. Once granted asylum, individuals may be eligible to apply for a green card after a year.
