Numerous Factors Influencing Asylum

If you fear for your safety or the safety of your family, it might be possible to stay in the United States even after you are out of status. The U.S. government typically recognizes five grounds for persecution:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Nationality
  • Political opinion
  • Membership in a particular social group

If you fear that you or your loved ones will be persecuted on these grounds, it is wise to speak with an attorney. Additionally, seeking asylum can be used as a deportation defense. Based on your specific situation, a skilled Houston lawyer might be able to cancel your removal.
