MY ASYLUM HAS BEEN FILED RECENTLY AND I AM WAITING FOR AN INTERVIEW - HOW CAN I PREPARE FOR MY ASYLUM INTERVIEW?
The first thing to remember is that you are going to be interviewed by asylum officer at 1585 S. Manchester Avenue Anaheim, CA 92802 Los Angeles Asylum office based on your asylum application and the interview is more likely than not will be conducted in the form of interrogation. You have to know and remember what's contained in your asylum application and you have to be able to clearly explain why you are seeking asylum in the United States through your interpreter to the asylum officer.
What is the format of asylum interview?
Some asylum applicants compared asylum officers to Nazi interrogators from the world war II movies that used extreme psychological pressure and emotional abuse to force a confession. We disagree with such comparison because the asylum officers unlike their Nazi counterparts decades ago
1) are not allowed to use torture; 2) are far more benign than the Nazis ; 3) do not need to use extreme interrogation methods because the asylum applicants often come with fraudulent asylum stories and get nervous and confused even under a slightest pressure and thus lose credibility and get denied even after a few basic questions.
However, asylum officers, well aware of all the asylum fraud that was going in the 1990s especially with Armenian and Russian asylum cases, are well trained to test credibility of the asylum applicant' s asylum claim. It is important not only what questions the asylum officer is asking you, but how they ask a question. And for asylum officer its important to see you and hear you answering their question not only what substantive statements you make about your asylum claim. The tone of the voice and facial expression of the asylum officer and of the applicant will probably contribute more to the approval or denial of the asylum case than the statements that asylum applicant made.
It is extremely important to look at an Immigration Attorney.
