Special Immigrant Juvenile Status and Asylum (Juvenile)

Minors are among the most vulnerable group of migrants that cross the U.S. Border. In an effort to provide legal protection for this group, Congress created the Special Immigrant Juvenile Status in 1990. Obtaining SIJS classification affords legal status to undocumented minors, who were subjected to abuse, neglect or abandonment. It creates a pathway for them to become legal permanent residents, and eventually United States Citizens.
