If a timely motion to reopen to apply for asylum was denied in April and the asylum form was filed in March, can I apply for work permit (EAD) while the appeal is pending at the Board ? The appeal for MTR was filed in May with BIA.
Calculating the EAD 'clock' is a fairly complex matter ... talk to your attorney.
No attorney .... yet?????

I assume you are moving to reopen a case in which you were ordered deported and you want to reopen the case to apply for asykum. If my assumption is correct then, "No," you can not. becasue you have not yet requested asylum and the clock for the pending asylum has not yet started.
