When will I have my asylum interview?

Many asylum applicants have been waiting for more than two years to be interviewed by an asylum officer. The long wait is stressful but applicants are also stressed by not knowing when to expect their interviews. Recently, USCIS has alleviated that stress a little by posting an Affirmative Asylum Processing Bulletin. The Bulletin explains the agency’s priorities but also includes a chart listing the asylum applications each office is interviewing that month. The Bulletin can be found here: http://www.uscis.gov/humanitarian/refugees-asylum/asylum/affirmative-asylum-scheduling-bulletin
