You’ve arrived in the United States. You know you can’t return to your home country, but you are unsure how to go about staying here. You don’t have work authorization and you may not have a driver’s license. At this point, though, you are just glad to be safe. You have few (or no) family members in the United States and want desperately to win your asylum case so you can get a green card. However, you don’t know whom you can trust. And it seems that the more questions you have, the more confused you become with all the different responses you receive. One thing you know for certain: you can’t afford to lose your case because then you’ll risk returning to where you came from.
You are still in your home country and realize you can’t stay. Life has become unbearable. Those like you and those you know have been fired or harmed. If others knew everything about you, you might be killed. What is worse – the police will not protect you. The idea of fleeing to the United States calls like a whistle through the fog. Filing for asylum will allow you to stay and work there legally. Everyone on the Internet, however, seems to have a different answer to your simple questions. One thing you know for certain: when you arrive in the United States, you can’t risk returning to where you came from.

Final Note: For ease of reference, I use the pronoun “she” throughout this book to refer to an asylum applicant, rather than “they” or “he.” Although international treaties use the male pronoun, women make up the majority of the population.
