  • Description

This guide helps asylees apply for resettlement assistance from the government. An asylee is legally defined as a person who flees his or her country and is unable or unwilling to return due to persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution. The persecution may be on the basis of race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a social group. An asylee enters the United States and then requests permission to stay by applying for asylum.
