some, the poetic verse, “yearning to breathe free,” expresses more than just an abstract idea. Many people come
to the United States from countries where no freedom exists for political opponents, for people who speak unpopular truths,
for those who practice minority religions, for women who refuse to submit to gender-related persecution, or for other persons
from disfavored national, ethnic or social groups.
The Refugee Act of 1980 permits some people who are physically
present in the United States to apply for asylum in the U.S. or withholding of removal to the countries where they fear
persecution. The Convention Against Torture protects people who can show that they would be tortured upon return to their
home country. To prove a case under these laws can be difficult, however, because Asylum Officers and Immigration Judges apply
strict tests to determine whether applicants are credible, whether they have presented sufficient evidence to support their
claims, and whether their claims are consistent with what is known about political conditions and human rights practices in
the country of persecution.
