8 U.S.C. § 1158(d)(5)(A) states that “in the absence of exceptional circumstances, the initial interview or hearing on the asylum application shall commence not later than 45 days after the date an application is filed” and that “final administrative adjudication of the asylum application . . . shall be completed within 180 days after the date an application is filed.”
Even assuming this is not enforceable, how can a multiyear wait for just an interview be considered reasonable if the statute is any guide?
