In 2012 I applied for asylum but haven't receive any interview notice from USCIS since then. In 2013 I sent USCIS a letter asking when the interview is available , their reply:"Your asylum interview is still pending" without any further explanation. What shall I do to speed up this process? Is InfoPass helpful?
Thank you very much
Relax. There is nothing you (or anyone else) can do to "speed up" the asylum interview scheduling process. Those are currently taking about a year and a half at the Anaheim Los Angeles Asylum Office. You'll need to be patient. In the meantime, enjoy the work permit you surely must have applied for and received long since.

An info pass could help or calling the 800 customer service number for USCIS. If you do not have an attorney you may want to consult an experienced immigration attorney to analyze your case before making any decisions.

The Los Angeles Asylum Office is THE busiest asylum office in the nation and, plagued with perpetual staffing shortage issue, and ever-growing application load, is facing a rather long backlog. The only way to obtain an expedited interview date there is to have extenuating, pressing (probably medical) reasons to have your case heard out of order. That office is also creating a stand by list for this wishing and able to get interviewed on short notice (sometimes as short as 24 hours) based on cancellations. If you wish to be placed on the stand-by list or feel that you have documentable reasons to be heard out of order, please write the Director of the Asylum office for Los Angeles and request one or both. Good luck.
