Asylum is a form of relief available to certain immigrants, which allows the applicants to remain in the United States as refugees due to fear of persecution on account of one of the five enumerated grounds: political opinion, race, religion, nationality, or membership in a particular social group. If a person is granted asylum status, it typically leads to a permanent resident status.
