Asylum[edit]

What is the U.S. policy on granting asylum to people who flee from oppressive regimes? Landmartian (talk) 22:15, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Complicated, legalistic, and full of contradictions? I mean, it exists, and it has rules for granting hearings for those in need. Anything answer more detailed than that probably calls for a lawyer. Ikanreed (talk) 22:34, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
When compared to Europe or even Canada the US has a relatively liberal Asylum policy [1]. It is also my understanding that it can in certain circumstances, be expedited, for instance seaking asylum was and still is easier for those fleeing a communist regime or a regime of another one of our enemies.
