Domestic Violence and Political Asylum

Recent Landmark Victories in the Struggle for U.S. Immigration Laws to Recognize and Fully Protect  Human Rights Of Women:

To  be eligible for political asylum in the United States an  individual must establish that he or she is a refugee under the  Immigration and Nationality Act.  He or she must be outside his or her  country of nationality, and be unable or unwilling to return to that  country because of past persecution or a well-founded fear of future  persecution on account of one of five protected grounds: race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. The applicant must prove that the feared persecution is either by the  government or by groups or individuals the government is unable or  unwilling to control.


Under Matter of L-R- (2010) and Matter of R-A- (2009), victims of domestic violence can  establish eligibility for asylum as members of a “particular social group”




If you have been a victim of domestic violence in your home country and wish to apply for GENDER BASED asylum green card in the United States you might be eligible.
