President Trump’s speech at the State of the Union Address hinted at certain immigration agenda and new policies, including DACA and TPS. What about asylum? Many people have been calling and asking whether there a danger that asylum will no longer be available? This has not been at the forefront of discussion. What has taken place however is that the Department Justice has all but warned Immigration Judges about high approval rates, etc. Asylum is available to those who fear returning to their home country . The United States should always remain a safe haven for people who fear returning to their home country. Applying for asylum (if eligible) may not only save you from deportation but can also lead you on a path to permanent residency.
