The U.S. Government has implemented a new program under which certain asylum-seeking families are scheduled for a “Credible Fear Interview” before a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Asylum Officer outside of an immigration detention center in certain U.S. cities. If a family receives a positive determination after their Credible Fear Interview, they have the right to stay in the United States while they seek asylum. If a family receives a negative credible fear determination, they are scheduled for deportation from the United States.
Americans for Immigrant Justice is a group of lawyers who believe all immigrants who seek safety from harm in the United States should have the right to seek asylum. Americans for Immigrant Justice provides free legal consultation and legal assistance to asylum-seeking families to help them understand the credible fear process and asylum law in the United States, and to help them identify the facts of their case that are most important to share with the Asylum Officer during their Credible Fear Interview.
Americans for Immigrant Justice is not a part of or affiliated with the U.S. government.
