Immigration and Citizenship

Refugees and Asylees
Outside the Preference System. Refugees and asylees are not subject to the numerical limits of the preference system, though Congress often places separate limits on the number of refugees that may be admitted each year. Only a tiny percentage of all these applications are approved.

An immigration lawyer is almost always essential to prove refugee status. You must prove that you will be in danger of actual physical harm if you return to your own country. Religious persecution is a common ground that hits sympathetic ears in America, one of the world's most religious countries.
