Asylum may be granted to people who are already in the United States and are unable or unwilling to return to their home country because of persecution of well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or public opinion.
If you are granted asylum, you will be allowed to live and work in the United States. You also will be able to apply for permanent resident status one year after you are granted asylum. Asylum and refugee status are closely related except the point that refugee status is asked for outside the United States while the asylum status is asked for in the United States.
