Immigration has usually denied asylum to persons who are harmed due to their wealth. The reasoning is that if they are harmed because they are rich, tomorrow they may be poor. Unlike being a victim of domestic violence, being rich is not a fundamental trait to any group.
Recently, the Board of Immigration Appeals gave asylum to a man although part of his claim was based on his financial situation. I wrote an article about this significant change in asylum law. Please read this and other asylum-related articles in AVVO that I have posted over the years.
