Each year, more than 20,000 people from over 100 nations are granted asylum in the United States. Asylees have often suffered from persecution in their country of origin, forced migration, detention in the United States, and the uncertainty of the asylum adjudication process. Most confront systemic and bureaucratic barriers to resettlement and integration, and need well-coordinated and prompt social services to ease their transition.

What if your asylee client has an error on his/her I-94 card? Do you know how to get it corrected? What if Social Security won’t issue your asylee client a card? What if an employer demands documentation from your asylee client that he or she doesn’t have? Documentation problems can impede asylees’ employment, access to public benefits, and integration.
