If you are in the United States or at the U.S. border, you have the right to request for protection under asylum. If you are outside the U.S. you may apply as a refugee to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

Contrary to popular belief, refugee status and asylum are not the same thing. There are two main differences between the two forms of relief. Asylum seekers must be already in the United States and must submit the application to the United States government within one year of admission. Meanwhile, refugees seek help from the United Nations from outside the United States.
