I am on pending asylum, I applyed while in status but now I am out of nonimmigrant status. I have an employer who wants to help me with a green card
Can I do consular prossecing in Canada,Mexico or even Bahamas?
I need to know before I start.
If I went to any of these countries, Am i risking denial of the green card or denial of entry ?
Please help, Thanks a lot.
Many countries accept "third country processing" for immigration visa issuance. If the U.S. processes people from other countries in any of those locations, then you may be eligible to get your visa there. There is always a risk of denial for any application, at any US consular post.
The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
In most cases, you can not have an immigrant visa processed in Canada, Mexico, nor the Bahamas.
You should start by talking to the company's immigration lawyer.

Your lawyer will need to find which US Consulates in 3rd countries would be willing to process your application for an immigrant visa.
