I need to apply asylum in the US on the grounds of religion and political opinion and domstic abuse from my country of nationality (which is also my father's country - muslim country). I was born in another country which im not citizen of (another strict religious roman catholic country). Will my asylum request be denied because i was born in a different country than the one im escaping? I cant live in any of these countries as my birth place is generally unsafe country and i dont know any relative or understand the language. Please tell me If i have a case?
P.S my birth country will not provide me protection from the authority of my country of nationality. And it has many human rights violations itself.
