Immigration Options for Undocumented Immigrant
The Associated Press reports that some asylum seekers who crossed the border at Mexico may be waiting a decade before they even get a date to see a judge.
In New York, ICE told asylum seekers this month to return in March 2033.
In San Antonio; Miramar, Florida; Los Angeles; Jacksonville, Florida; Milwaukee; Chicago; Washington; Denver; and Mount Laurel, New Jersey, the wait is until March 2027.
After that, their cases will work their way through the immigration courts—a process that takes about four years amid a backlog that reached 2.1 million cases in January.
