How long does asylum process take in the US?

Skeptical of someone I heard receiving asylum in the US from Colombia. They claim they had their appointment and were told "welcome" just like that. In 1 year they can travel abroad freely and in 5 years can go back to Colombia. Didnt really make sense to me but wondering if anyone knew.
