I have a decent job and I want to get my Green Card ASAP. Since i am from under-developed country and my country situation is pretty pathetic, there is no condition that i would be able to go back home. (reasons very personal family matter due to country civil war) . My friends who were in similar situation, applied for asylum and they have managed to get one so far. But i am not comfortable doing this, cause i am afraid what after-consequences i have to face if my asylum visa gets rejected. Will USA kick me out if my asylum gets rejected? Can i still go for my graduate studies, and then apply for EB2 visa if my asylum visa gets rejected. ? Thanks!!
As long as you remain in valid nonimmigrant status, nothing will happen if your asylum is denied at USCIS. if you are not in valid status, your case would be referred to immigration court for removal proceedings, in which you could assert the asylum claim before the immigration judge anew.
If you are currently in valid non immigrant status, and your asylum case is denied, you will continue in non immigrant status. If you have already been out of status or fail to maintain your non immigrant status, the asylum office will refer your case to an Immigration Judge for further adjudication of your request for asylum. It's important to maintain your non immigrant status at all times.
