Human Rights First

Asylum is a legal status that the U.S. government can grant to people who are at risk of harm in their home countries because of who they are because of their religion, political opinion, sexual orientation, or ethnicity, for example if the governments in their home countries will not protect them.
Those seeking asylum in the U.S. are more likely to be granted this form of protection if he or she is represented by a lawyer who understands the system. Our pro bono legal program matches good lawyers with asylum-seekers who would not otherwise be able to afford representation.
