I will be interview by next week based on political asylum I just to know some sample question what IO asking
Asylum is not easy to get if your case is not well prepared. I would work with an attorney before your interivew. If you are currently out of status you will be placed in deportation proceedings if you are not granted asylum by the officer. (You will have another chance to seek asylum in court but that will be harder).
The officer will ask you about why you are applying for asylum. They will ask if you have ever been harmed by the government or by people the government can not or will not control. They will ask the reason you were harmed or why you fear you will be harmed. If you were invovled in politics they will ask you about your involvment and wil ask about important dates and names and about documents you submitted or any proof you have about your claim. On my website I have a page about preparing for the asylum interview. Just reading my website is likely not enough preperation, I would encourage you to work with an attorney.

Asylum Attorney in Seattle
I strongly recommend you meet with an attorney who is experienced with asylum cases. It isn't only a matter of practicing outloud explaining why you need asylum, although that's important, you really need to have someone review the statements and evidence you submitted with the application, and work with you to obtain evidence including articles and reports that would justify your fear. Also know that your fear must be based on one or more of five grounds. This stage of the process is very important in part because if the asylum officer doesn't grant your case, and you need to pursue it in removal proceedings, you must use the same application previously filed. Often after reviewing the details with a qualified attorney, the case is fleshed out. Then the governent says, 'funny you didn't mention that at the interview, so you must be making it up.' Which also does raise the very important point of not ever saying something that isn't true. The consequences are severe.
