USCIS announces new Affirmative Asylum priorities

On January 29th, 2018, USCIS announced their new priorities for scheduling Affirmative Asylum interviews.

According to the announcement, “USCIS will now schedule asylum interviews in the following order of priority:

  • First priority: Applications that were scheduled for an interview, but the interview had to be rescheduled at the applicant’s request or the needs of USCIS.
  • Second priority: Applications that have been pending 21 days or less.
  • Third priority: All other pending affirmative asylum applications will be scheduled for interviews starting with newer filings and working back towards older filings”

Unfortunately, this means that those who have been waiting years for their interviews will need to wait longer. We pray that USCIS can hire more officers and adjudicate these applications quickly. Being stuck in limbo wreaks havoc on families.
