First of all, I don't have legal status in the US. I applied asylum when I had valid non-immigration visa, unfortunately got denied. Then I added some new evidence such as news reports regarding me and submitted a motion to reopen. Till this point, I was under legal visa. However, after an unexpected long waiting period, my visa got expired. I became a funny illegal immigrant. Today, I'm still waiting for the decision on that motion to reopen. I'm curies why they didn't sent me to the immigration court since I lost my legal status. But this is not the end of my story.
In order to make a live, sometimes I hired by people who can't speak english to be an interpreter on asylum interviews.
Asylum officers may request information on any part of the case in order to assist them in making a determination. This includes requesting immigration status of the applicant.
If you are seeking professional assistance to expedite your case, determine the status, or prepare a defense, I strongly suggest that you consult with an immigration attorney.

Yes, the Asylum officers may ask your immigration status and you must be honest. These questions you pose should be discussed in a confidential setting with an experienced immigration lawyer, not over the internet.
For more information, contact our Immigration Law Firm for a confidential consultation.
Good luck to you.
