Asylum, Refugee, TPS And SIJ Applications And Appeals
People who have been persecuted in the countries they are from may apply for asylum, refugee status or temporary protected status in Los Angeles County and the rest of the United States. Key definitions are as follows:
- Asylum: Individuals already physically present in the U.S. may apply for asylum if they have good reasons to be afraid of persecution because of their identities in terms of race, religion or nationality, or because they belong to certain social groups or hold particular political opinions.
- Refugee: A refugee is a person outside the United States who cannot or will not go back to their country because they have suffered past persecution or expect to suffer persecution because of who they are, what groups they belong to or what they believe in.
- Temporary protected status (TPS): This is an immigration status available to foreign nationals in the United States when their own countries are currently unsafe or hazardous for reasons such as political problems, war, floods, earthquakes and other serious hardships in their countries.
- Special immigrant juvenile status (SIJS): An unmarried young person under the age of 18 or 21 who is in the United States and needs the protection of a juvenile court because of abuse, abandonment or neglect by a parent may be eligible for SIJ status and, eventually, lawful permanent residency (a green card).
