Description

Law of Asylum in the United States is an authoritative presentation of U.S. asylum law, long considered a must-have publication for practitioners, students, and teachers. It is frequently relied upon and cited by decision-makers. Law of Asylum describes and interprets applicable U.S. laws, as well as numerous international sources, providing an up-to-date analysis of all aspects of asylum law. This edition addresses current hot topics such as developments in the law interpreting particular social groups and a new approach to interpreting and applying the political opinion ground. Law of Asylum also addresses fundamental issues such as:

  • The meaning of well-founded fear and persecution
  • The five grounds for asylum (race, religion, nationality, social group membership, and political opinion)
  • Withholding of removal protection and protection under the Convention Against Torture
  • Claims based on childhood status and gender-based persecution
  • When non-state actors can be considered agents of persecution
  • Extensive coverage of gang membership/opposition to gangs
  • Elements of proof
  • Credibility determinations
  • Recent changes in statutory language enacted with the REAL ID Act
  • New BIA cases on social distinction and particularity
