What Counts as Persecution?

In immigration law, the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) does not provide specifics on what persecution actually is except for in a situation that involves a “coercive population control program” where the individual is “forced to abort a pregnancy or to undergo involuntary sterilization”. Otherwise, persecution, means that the applicant must be able to prove that the threats are so severe they will occur no matter what part of the country they are living in; it is a nationwide threat and they cannot avoid it by relocating to another part of the country.

Below are some examples of persecution:

  • Discrimination
  • Threats of harm
  • Mental, emotional, or psychological harm
  • Physical violence
  • Violations of human rights
  • Disproportionate punishment for a crime
  • Unlawful detention
  • Torture
