as soon as i came i was caught by immigration and put in processing for political asylum that was 3 years ago.how does this affect my unlawfully presence?
I will think you are not accruing any unlawful presence, however, I will recommend having a good lawyer handling your case to avoid any chances. In fact, we need more facts to give a good answer. I assume your case is in removal proceedings, therefore you are probably represented by counsel.
I agree with the above posts. If you are still in removal proceedings, you are likely not accruing unlawful presence. However, if you lost your asylum case and haven't appealed (or if you failed to depart after being granted voluntary departure), you might be. Talk with your immigration attorney if you have any questions about this.
