Clarifying Procedures for Terminating Asylum Status in Relation to Consideration of an Application for Adjustment of Status
"Asylum may be granted to those who meet the definition of a refugee and are physically present in the United States when seeking asylum status. However, a grant of asylum does not convey a right to remain permanently in the United States. The law provides certain grounds for termination of asylum status, such as when the alien no longer meets the definition of a refugee. An officer adjudicating an asylee’s adjustment of status application may identify a basis for terminating asylum status. This update provides more detailed guidance on the process by which USCIS terminates asylum status in relation to the consideration of an adjustment of status application. The guidance, contained in Volume 7 of the Policy Manual, is controlling and supersedes any prior guidance on the topic."
