U.S immigration law recognizes persecution based on the following:
- Political opinion

U.S. Asylum Application Process
The U.S. asylum process can be be complicated to navigate and can require extensive documentation. Since every asylum case is unique, it is important that you work with an attorney to help ensure that your application includes all the necessary paperwork, and to help guide you through all the intricate procedures.
The asylum process involves:
- Application: File your application with USCIS. Your application should include such items such as a form of identification, a copy of your passport, and a written affidavit of why asylum is necessary.
- Interview: You must also undergo an interview with an asylum officer. During the interview, you will be asked questions about your background, reasons for asylum, and other questions relating to your application.
- Asylum Office Decision: The asylum office will either grant you asylum or issue a denial. If you are been denied asylum, you have the option to appeal the decision.
