Applying for Asylum in the United States

On September 12, 2018, a settlement reached between the Department of Justice (DOJ) and lawyers representing the migrant families separated at the border under the current administration's "zero tolerance" migration enforcement policy. This settlement, if approved, will give those who have been ordered to be removed, but are still in the United States (U.S.) a second "credible fear interview."

Asylum, the 1-Year Rule and the exceptions!

Under 8 U.S.C. 1158(a)(2)(B), an application has the burden of proving by clear and convincing evidence that he applied for asylum within one year of his arrival in the United States or, to satisfaction of the IJ, that he qualifies for an exception to the one-year deadline for the existence of "changed circumstances."
