19. Will I be required to undergo any other criminal or security checks for granting Asylum?
 Yes, every individual who applies for Asylum will be subject to a background or security checks. Depending on the results of the mandatory check, you may not be eligible for a final grant of Asylum. Your application may be referred to the Immigration Judge, and you may be placed in removal proceedings in Immigration Court.

 The background of security checks consist of the following:
      USCIS sends a copy of your Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal, to the U.S. Department of State
      USCIS sends your biographical information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)
      USCIS checks your biographical information against law enforcement databases
      USCIS schedules you, if you are between 14 and 79 years of age, for fingerprinting at an Application Support Center or Designated Law Enforcement Agency. The fingerprints are sent to the FBI to conduct background/security checks
