Clear and Friendly Guide to Seeking Asylum, in English and Spanish

Stanford Law School’s Immigrants Rights Clinic created a clear, easily readable guide to “Getting Asylum Protection in the United States,” a 36-page booklet fully online. Asylum seekers, their friends and families, and advocates will likely reaffirm important lessons, learn new ones, and find the guide useful to share with others who want to replace general notations about asylum with real facts.

Created on behalf of two local advocacy and support groups – El Centro Legal de las Raza in Oakland, and Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto – the guides also include usable copies of key documents mandated by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) as part of the asylum process.
