How Do I Find Local Resources?

WHAT IS THE ASYLUMCONNECT CATALOG?

The “AsylumConnect Catalog” is the first and only resource website and mobile app designed for LGBTQ+ asylum seekers. In 2018, we added a new resource page to connect asylum seekers in Mexico with local LGBTQ-affirming services and support. 

If you are a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ+) person resettling in Mexico, traveling through Mexico or waiting at the Mexican border to seek LGBTQ+ asylum in the United States, you can search our free resource catalog to connect with local LGBTQ-friendly organizations.

How To Find Help

Here’s how it works:
  1. Select your language and Mexico as your country
  2. Select a city from the dropdown menu under “Support in Mexico” to view local LGBTQ-friendly organizations
  3. Scroll down the page to learn more about the U.S. LGBTQ asylum process

Questions?

Go to our FAQs page to view answers to some common questions about AsylumConnect and using our free website and app to find safe services for LGBTQ+ asylum seekers and other LGBTQ+ people in need.

'Remain In Mexico' Policy

IMPACT OF POLICY ON PEOPLE SEEKING LGBTQ+ ASYLUM AT THE SOUTHWEST BORDER

Latest update: On September 11, 2019, the U.S. Supreme Court temporarily lifted a lower court’s block to allow for the Trump administration to begin denying asylum requests from people at all points along the southern border who have traveled through Mexico or another country without seeking protection there. Asylum seekers must pass an initial screening called a “credible fear” interview. Under this policy, asylum seekers will fail this initial screening if they cannot show they already requested asylum in at least one country they traveled through and were denied. Failing would result in being put in fast-track deportation proceedings. The American Civil Liberties Union is continuing to challenge the Trump Administration’s asylum policy in court.
