Nicaraguan asylum seeker

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello I just want some information if people from Nicaragua currently can seek asylum in the States if that individual is already in the States? Would the protests etc make a good case? I know they have been calming down and the last time I was there in July and August it already seemed calm. What happens if an asylum petition gets denied? Does this person get deported? Which forms need to be filed for an asylum petition? I'm only looking for information right now.

They certainly try to gain asylum and you can file of you are in the country. If the asylum petition gets denied then you will need to leave the country. That decision can be appealed but if the appeal is denied then you would have to leave.

Very few of those mentioned have a valid claim, they are economic migrants. So the first thing to be determined is if you have a valid basis for claiming asylum.

You need a valid reason (expressed in a detailed personal statement) and all the supporting information that you can muster.  This includes police or court reports, medical reports, etc. after having been abused by the government or its agents.  Asylum applicants without such information are almost automatically denied.

 

Edited for correctness (see italics):

Applicants appear before USCIS first.  If that stage is not passed, they're referred to immigration court. People are being scheduled for court appearances in 2020 and beyond.
