You must meet all of the following in order to apply:
- You must show that there is at least a 50% chance you will be persecuted if returned to your home country.
- The persecution you fear is because of a protected ground
- You must show that the abuse has been, or would be, inflicted by the government or by a group the government is unable or unwilling to control.
- You do not have a “particularly serious crime” and have not persecuted others. If you have been convicted of an aggravated felony and sentenced to 5 years or more, or a drug trafficking offense, you are probably not eligible.
