- 第二优先级: 已挂起的应用程序 21 天或更少.
- 第三优先级: 所有其他未决的肯定庇护申请将安排进行面谈, 从新的文件, 并返回到旧的档案.
- First priority: Applicants who 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.
Why is USCIS making this change to asylum in the USA?
如果你申请庇护, 你可以申请工作许可 150 天后. 然后你可以工作, 直到你被接受或拒绝. 移民局说, 新的进程将减少申请避难的人数, 只是为了获得工作许可证. 如果新的申请人是先处理, 而不是等待多年, 移民局认为, 他们可能不会申请, 除非他们有一个良好的情况下. 这是因为当庇护申请者被拒绝时, 他们可能会被从美国删除
If you apply for asylum, you may apply for a work permit 150 days later. Then you can work until you are accepted or refused. USCIS says the new process will reduce the number of people applying for asylum just to get a work permit. If new applicants are dealt with first instead of waiting for years, USCIS believes they probably won’t apply unless they have a good case. This is because when asylum applicants are turned down, they may be removed from the USA
