Asylum Application Training about the changes in the U.S. government’s policy – “Last in First Out” (sponsored by ILAP and University of Maine School of Law)

When: March 23, 2018, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Where: Portland Adult Education at 14 Locust Street, Portland, ME 04101

This is an event for anyone who is NOT in deportation proceedings and who is seeking asylum; also, this workshop will NOT cover how to apply, but rather the changes in USCIS’ policy and how to prepare for the interview

To address a crisis-level backlog of 311,000 pending asylum cases and an increase of 1750 percent over the last five years, USCIS will follow these priorities when scheduling affirmative asylum interviews:

  1. Applications that were scheduled for an interview, but the interview had to be rescheduled at the applicant’s request or the needs of USCIS;
  2. Applications pending 21 days or less since filing; and
  3. All other pending applications, starting with newer filings and working back toward older filing
