Under international law, a refugee is an individual who is “unable to return to his or her home country due to a well-founded fear of persecution based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or social group. As the U.S. Department of State notes, “refugees are subject to the highest level of security checks of any category of traveler to the United States.”
