    Can Asylum-Seekers Apply at U.S. Embassies Abroad?

    Can Asylum-Seekers Apply at U.S. Embassies Abroad?


    “The United States does not grant asylum in its diplomatic premises abroad.”

    About this rating


    Origin

    A frequent but wholly inaccurate talking point used by some opponents of more open southern border immigration policies is the claim that asylum-seekers can present themselves and apply for asylum at locations outside of the United States, such as a U.S. consulate or embassy.

    Why, the argument falsely posits, would persons with genuine claims to asylum risk their lives (and potentially the lives of their family members as well) to cross the U.S. border illegally when they could simply wait out the asylum approval process from the relative comfort of the countries in which they currently reside?:



    The answer, in part, is that one cannot apply for asylum anywhere but in the United States.

    Though nine U.S. consulate general offices and one U.S embassy are indeed located in Mexico, those facilities would be useless to asylum-seekers. According to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS),
    “To apply for asylum in the U.S., you must be physically present in the U.S”:



    Having a presence at, or proximity to, U.S. diplomatic property abroad does not qualify as “physically present in the U.S.” As stated on several U.S. embassy websites:

    “The United States does not grant asylum in its diplomatic premises abroad.

    Under U.S. law, the United States grants asylum only to aliens who are physically present in the United States.”

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    Terminate and defund Asylum. We cannot have One Billion people on the planet show up on our doorstep.

    NO MORE!

    MANY DO NOT QUALIFY!
