Suffering discrimination in a home country alone is generally not enough to win an asylum case in the United States. To be eligible for asylum, an individual must demonstrate that they have suffered past persecution or have a well-founded fear of future persecution because of a protected ground, such as race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group.

Discrimination, by itself, is generally not considered persecution. However, in some cases, discrimination can be part of a pattern of persecution that, when considered with other evidence, may rise to the level of persecution. For example, if an individual has been subject to multiple incidents of discrimination that have escalated to threats or violence, this may be considered persecution because of a protected ground.

To establish eligibility for asylum, the individual must also show that the government of their home country is unable or unwilling to protect them from the persecution. If the government is able and willing to provide effective protection, the individual may not be eligible for asylum.

Discrimination alone is generally not enough to win an asylum case, but it may be considered as part of a larger pattern of persecution. It is important for individuals who are considering applying for asylum to consult with an experienced immigration attorney for guidance on the particular issues in their case.


Failing to pay taxes can have several consequences for individuals in the U.S. immigration system, including the following:

  1. Denial of immigration benefits: Failing to pay taxes can result in the denial of certain immigration benefits, such as permanent residency, citizenship, or certain work permits. This is because U.S. immigration law requires applicants to demonstrate good moral character, which can be negatively impacted by a failure to pay taxes.
  2. Removal proceedings: If an individual fails to pay taxes, they may be placed in removal proceedings if they are found to be inadmissible or deportable. This can occur if the individual is convicted of tax evasion or is deemed a public charge due to their failure to pay taxes.
  3. Criminal charges: Failure to pay taxes can result in criminal charges, including charges of tax evasion or fraud. These charges can lead to fines, imprisonment, and other penalties.
  4. Other penalties: In addition to criminal charges and removal proceedings, failure to pay taxes can also result in other penalties, such as the seizure of assets or suspension of certain government benefits.

Failing to pay taxes can have serious consequences for individuals in the U.S. immigration system. It is important for individuals to comply with their tax obligations.
