USCIS Asylum Officer

The person who makes decisions about an affirmative asylum application is called an Asylum Officer.  The Asylum Officer conducts interviews and adjudicates asylum applications that are not made in Immigration Court.  The Asylum Officers are located in eight Asylum Offices across the United States: New York, NY, Newark, NJ, Arlington, VA, Miami, FL, Houston, TX, Chicago, IL, San Francisco, CA and Anaheim, CA.

Asylum Officers conduct interviews at the eight Asylum Offices, and also travel around the country performing asylum interviews at other government offices.  If an asylum applicant does not live near one of the eight asylum offices, then he or she must wait for an Asylum Officer to visit the area in order to have an interview.  Most interviews are done within 3-4 months of an asylum application being filed.

Asylum Officers are employees of the federal government, but they are protected from political pressure.  They cannot be asked questions about politics when hired, and they are allowed to keep their job as long as they do not commit any misconduct.  The point of these rules is to make sure that the Asylum Officer is allowed to do what he or she thinks is right, rather than listening to political pressure.  An Asylum Officer cannot be fired for granting too many asylum applications.

I would highly recommend Political Asylum USA's consultation service! It was very informative about my rights as a persecuted LGBT individual.

Political Asylum USA was a great resource to me. They fully explained the process of getting asylum in the United States. When I told them that I didn't have any money to hire a private attorney, they recommended a non-profit legal provider to me.

I was lost when I arrived to the United States, and scared for my life in my home country. I knew I couldn't go back, but I also didn't know what to do. I found Political Asylum USA and luckily they gave me all the information I needed, to fully investigate my options. I would recommend their services to anyone that does not know how to proceed with asylum

Political Asylum USA helped me to understand how asylum works in the United States. It is extremely complicated, so it was nice to have experts to guide me. They even referred me to a top New York-based Immigration Attorney, who handled my case from start to finish.
