Newark, NJ asked in Immigration Law for New Jersey

Q: Work authorization?

I did my credible fear interview on 8/14/2014 which was positive for credible fear, I was released upon a bond granted to me by an immigration judge. I was released on October, 18. I'm wating for my first hearing which has no date yet, the only hearing I had until this moment was a bond hearing, it is possible for me in this case ask for a work authorization since the process is talking so long?
