Finding employment when you come into the United States as an immigrant can sometimes be complicated. Trying to figure out which documents you need might be one of the more complicated aspects of trying to find employment. Recently, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services issued guidance that might make that aspect of finding employment a little easier.
When many people think of asylum, they might think of people who are fleeing political problems. What some people might not realize is that not all persecution that qualifies for asylum has to do only with politics. Some people might qualify for asylum based on their sexual orientation, gender identification or HIV status.
When a person is seeking asylum in the United States, he or she will have to apply for that protection. Once the asylum petition is submitted, it will be up to the immigration officials and courts to decide what decision is necessary. There are several options that an applicant for asylum might encounter.
