A: The question is unclear. More information may be needed.

If your asylum is sent to the Executive Office of Immigration Review, which is immigration court, then the DHS cannot approve the asylum claim. As a result, DHS plans to deport you unless you can prove to an immigration court that you qualify for asylum. The referral means that USCIS has denied your asylum claim.

It’s uncl why it denied the asylum. I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are more complications. Good luck.

The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.

A: Just going to court will not impact an asylee’s case. Why the asylee is going to court might. They should speak to an immigration attorney about their specific circumstances.
