Asylum has been a topic of great discussion in the past several years in the United States. Many people want to come to the United States to have the opportunity for a better life. Most of those seeking asylum risk their lives to make it across the border or borders from their original country of origin to be able to claim asylum and enter the United States. Most recently, the mass majority are coming from Central America due to the deteriorating way of life in this region. The purpose of this thesis serves as an analysis on why people from Central America, particularly the “Northern Triangle” flee and journey to the United States. It also looks into the obstacles that they face as they cross the border and what happens when they reach their destination. Also, this paper will address potentially different ways to deal with the mass amounts of asylum application in the United States as global dynamics change and redefine the realities of immigration and asylum for people wanting to emigrate to the United States.
